EANS Research Committee




The EANS Research Committee is primarily responsible for neurosurgical research matters in EANS country members.

The Committee aims to act as an advocate and conduit for increasing the quality of neurosurgery research by:

- making research more accessible to all neurosurgeons
- encouraging multi-centre and multi-national collaboration
- organising training courses on research methodology
- judging relevant research awards

The Committee also aims to act as an advocate and conduit for increasing patient and public engagement in neurosurgical research across Europe. 


The current Chair of the Research Committee is Radoslaw Rola (Poland).

EANS / SBNS Registry

Inspired by the UK's listing of sponsored neurosurgical clinical trials, the EANS and SBNS have developed a clinical trials registry. The objective is to document trial activity and particularly assist in recruitment both nationally and internationally.

To this end, the EANS would be grateful if you would contact Carole Turner in the event that you are aware of any multi-centre trials.
