The inaugural EANS Brno HandsOn Course took place from 28 November to 1 December 2017, led by Course Chairmen, EANS Training Committee Chair Torstein Meling and Chief of Neurosurgery Department of University Hospital Brno Martin Smrcka.

The format was immediately successful and received excellent evaluations from the participations. Please see the testimonials below.
