EANS2022 Congress Day 2: Exceeding every expectation!
The 2nd day of the Congress was full of engaging sessions, educational masterclasses, and beautiful moments that were driven by emotional and inspiring talks. The day began with parallel sessions in Neurotrauma and Critical Care, Vascular and Epilepsy Neurosurgery, CPA, and PNS Tumors and Entrapments.
EANS Members that attended the morning masterclasses learned about new strategies and technologies and had the chance to review "cases with the same brain tumour but with different approaches in adults and children". Interesting lectures were also delivered on "the impact of peripheral nerve injury on trauma management strategies", including "challenges in concomitant Tbi and plexus injury" as well as "timing and strategy in acute peripheral injury".
The Global Neurosurgery session stood out today! Exceptional panelists elaborated thoroughly on different aspects of insufficient or missing neurosurgical care in large parts of the world. Through the session, the profound need for promoting EANS activities for education and neurosurgical care in those countries became obvious.
The afternoon plenary session on Neurotraumatology brought ground-breaking insights into "real life" Adherence to TBI Guidelines, as presented by Wilco Peul. "Changing epidemiology of CNS injuries" was elegantly presented by A. Unterberg. The day concluded with more intriguing lectures on Brain Metastases and complication avoidance in aneurysm surgery, degenerative diseases, and chronic and acute subdural hematoma and DBS surgery.
The Young Neurosurgeons‘ Network was launched at the end of the congress day, where young neurosurgeons were invited to engage in a network that can set the future ground for the neurosurgical community.
A lifetime of achievements: Elite scientists awarded for their contribution to Neurosurgery
Today the EANS honoured elite scientists for their longstanding contribution in Neurosurgery. The plenary awards ceremony began with the Lifetime Achievement Award to Prof. Dr. Miroslav Samardzic Faculty of Medicine, University of Belgrade, for his outstanding contribution and achievements in the field of Neurosurgery. In a sequence that mimicked reality, as the next speaker was taught by Prof. Dr. Miroslav Samardzic, Prof. Dr. Lukas Rasulic took the floor next to deliver a remarkable lecture on Peripheral Nervous System Surgery - Neurosurgery Beyond Technology. 

The ceremony continued with an EANS much anticipated tradition: The European Lecture, that was delivered by Andras Buki, full professor at Örebro University, Sweden, and former chair of the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Pecs, Hungary, who spoke about "Translational research in neurotrauma: the Biomarker Avenue (and some dead ends...)". 
EANS also proudly awarded Prof. Dr. Andre Grotenhuis, Emeritous Professor and former chairman of the department of Neurosurgery at Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen, The Netherlands, with the Medal of Honour of the Association, for his lifetime dedication and contribution to the EANS and to the global neurosurgical community. 
3 more awards were given for Exceptional Service to European Neurosurgery:

Prof. Dr. Mustafa Necmettin Pamir, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery, Acibadem University, Turkey,
Prof. Dr. Vinko Dolenc, Department of Neurosurgery, University Medical Center Ljubljana,
Prof. Dr. Panagiotis Selviaridis, Emeritus Professor of Neurosurgery Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

The awardees were called to the stage to receive their awards and a standing ovation from the delegates, as amongst the attendees were several students that were trained by these exceptional scientists and teachers!
The awards part of the day was concluded with 3 Best Abstract Awards:

T.K. Korhonen won the Global Neurosurgery Best Abstract with his submission: A collaborative approach to improve neurotrauma care and data collection - the Global Epidemiology and Outcomes after Traumatic Brain Injury (GEO-TBI) registry, 
R.A. Garvila Laic
received the Trauma aand Critical Care Best Abstract with her contribution: Traumatic Brain Injury in the elderly population: changes in injury patterns, management and outcome of a 2 decade period.
O. Petr won the Second Best Abstract in Trauma and Critical Care with his submission: Simultaneous supra-and infratentorial ICP monitoring in patients with posterior fossa lesions: Nonsense or necessity? Preliminary results of the DUAL-ICP trial.
EANS activities through its Committees and Sections
Global and Humanitarian Neurosurgery Committee - Think Global, Act Local.
Global and humanitarian neurosurgery is becoming important to every significant neurosurgical society. Establishing of the EANS Global and Humanitarian Neurosurgery Committee was officially confirmed at the EANS General Assembly in Hamburg in October 2021. Members of the Committee gathered around the idea that they could benefit humanity, collectively or individually.

EANS Foundation: creating a fountain of possibilities!
“Fundraising is the noble art of teaching people the pleasure of giving” (Henry Rosso)

We are proud to introduce you to the EANS Foundation for Research in Neurological Surgery. It aims to help release the untapped potential of philanthropy for research funding in neurosurgery
In the past, there has been resistance to the idea of raising funds from philanthropic sources, but nowadays philanthropy has been rediscovered and has become a major driver for university research, development...

The Young Neurosurgeons’ Committee active more than ever!
Another year has passed, and as the Chair of the YNC, I am happy to announce that the YNC committee has been more active than ever, with new endeavors throughout the year – and even more on the horizon. 
To begin with, our online presence has been extensive, developing multiple webinars with a focus on the engagement of the younger in neurosurgery while improving and empowering education.
Young Neurosurgeons Network: THE LAUNCH!
The EANS Young Neurosurgeons Committee announced today the official launch of the Young Neurosurgeons Network, the new platform that aims to connect young neurosurgeons across Europe... And Beyond! The Chair of the YN Committtee Marisa Gandia, along with Committee Members Diogo Belo and Evangelos Drosos, hosted an exciting event in the Individual Members Lounge, and analyzed the principles and goals of the newly established and full of potential Network. The Young Neurosurgeons Network aims to provide a platform to young neurosurgeons across Europe to participate in research projects, discover new professional prospects, advance their training and benefit from networking opportunities.

Membership applications will open very soon so... stay tuned!
