Dear colleagues, dear friends,
Welcome to EANS2022 – European Congress of Neurosurgery – and welcome to Belgrade!
The Congress theme – Trends, Insights, Innovations: Neurosurgery beyond Technology – addresses the complex relation between technological advances and human ingenuity in the field of neurosurgery. The age of rapid technological progress, artificial intelligence, machine learning and virtual reality in the 21st century has brought many benefits to neurosurgery, but also many challenges.
After two turbulent pandemic years, the Congress in Belgrade will represent the regathering of European and world experts in neurosurgery. It will provide an excellent opportunity for sharing experiences and exchanging ideas through the top-level scientific program, aimed at providing a comprehensive insight into these benefits and challenges and striking the right balance between technology and human (neurosurgeons’) touch.
The opportunity to hold this event of utmost scientific and social importance in Belgrade is a special honour for the neurosurgical community in Serbia and a much-appreciated acknowledgment of the enhanced regional and international cooperation in the previous period.
The Congress host city, Belgrade, has been the venue of several noteworthy international neurosurgical events over the past years – that said, we are particularly delighted to be able to host the EANS2022 Congress, which encapsulates the reintegration of the region into the mainstream of European neurosurgery.
Offering a unique blend between West and East, North and South, past and future, Belgrade will surely greet you with an open heart and an open mind.
We very much look forward to seeing you all in person next October in Belgrade!
Welcome. Explore. Enjoy.
President of the EANS
