The EANS offers various observership or fellowship opportunities and awards each year. We are always striving to expand these as a way of benefiting our members by putting our revenues back into new initiatives.
The International Relations Committee approached neurosurgical units in EANS member countries requesting the possibility to host observers from foreign countries. The response was very good and the list of the centres who indicated they
would be willing to host short-term observers can be found by clicking HERE.
If you are interested in an observership, please contact the host unit directly. Funding is the responsibility of the applicant.
Please contact email@example.com if you believe any of the information to be incorrect.
"I was delighted to discover I had won the Aesculap EANS research prize for best clinical research paper. Our research in patients with traumatic spinal cord injury hopes to improve treatment and outcomes for a group of patients
in which meaningful clinical research has been neglected for a long time. I hope our paper and it’s recognition amongst our peers stimulates others to start research in this field. I would encourage all young researchers to
consider entering their work for this prize, it offers an opportunity to showcase your work to the wider neurosurgical community and get recognition for your hard work."
Best Clinical Research Paper (2017)
"The Aesculap EANS Research Prize allows clinician researchers from within the field of neurosurgery to showcase their work to the European neurosurgical community. My work used PET imaging to demonstrate endogenous opioid release
during peri-aquaductal gray stimulation. The €5000 prize money that I received has allowed me invest in developing myself further as a neurosurgeon and scientist. I would recommend all neurosurgeons carrying out laboratory
or clinical research to submit their papers to the EANS for an opportunity to have your work recognised and celebrated, and the subsequent opportunities that may follow.", 2015
