European Academy of Neurology


Partnership type
Memorandum of Understanding

The European Academy of Neurology (EAN), with whom Alzheimer Europe has a Memorandum of Understanding, is a non-profit, independent organisation representing more than 45,000 members, as well as 47 European national societies. As a medical society they promote excellence in the practice of general neurology throughout Europe, leading to improved patient care. They also aim to keep Europe at the forefront of neurological research and maintain its position as one of the world’s scientific hotpots in neurology.

Their officers and leadership are renowned experts in neurology, who volunteer their time to help strengthen our organisation and serve researchers, clinicians and patients within the field of neurology.

EAN was founded in 2014 when the two main European neurological societies, the European Neurological Society (ENS) and European Federation of Neurological Societies (EFNS), agreed to join forces and merge into a single organisation. EAN was officially founded at the joint meeting of the ENS and EFNS in Istanbul in June 2014, creating Europe’s Home of Neurology.

Jean Georges represents Alzheimer Europe on the Management Group of the EAN Scientific Panel on Dementia and Cognitive Disorders and Iva Holmerová represents the organisation on the EAN project “The burden of the sleep/wake disorders: Excessive Daytime Sleepiness and Insomnia”
