European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS)
The European Association of Neurosurgical Societies is a professional community to enhance the quality of patient care through training, education and research. With 39 member societies, 3 affiliated societies and over 1800 individual members, it is the largest neurosurgical society in Europe.
As a long standing industry partner, Stryker has been supporting EANS courses and the EANS Research Fund on a yearly basis.
EANS research fund
The Stryker EANS research fund aims to promote clinical research into diseases of the brain and spine in Europe by providing seed grants to jump-start projects in the Neurosurgical field.
While major advances have been made in the treatment of brain injuries, brain tumours, stroke, epilepsy, hydrocephalus and disorders of the spine, there remain many unanswered questions and major opportunities to improve treatment and outcome for patients.
Stryker has committed to partnering with EANS to address these opportunities by supporting a grand of €10.000. The grant is intended to enable the acquisition of the pilot data necessary to apply for the substantial funding required to complete such projects from large grant funding bodies.
Interested parties should download and submit an application form, which can be found at the EANS website:
Deadline: December each year
