EANO - European Association of Neuro-Oncology
EANO is Europe’s multidisciplinary Neuro-Oncology organisation representing all medical and scientific disciplines involved in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of tumours of the central nervous system (CNS). EANO is dedicated to promote advances in Neuro-Oncology through innovative research and concerted education and training. It enhances collaboration between all relevant disciplines - Neuro-Oncology, Neurosurgery, Neuropathology, Neuroradiology, and Radiation Oncology as well as Nursing - and aims at bridging science, knowledge and practice gaps in the management of CNS malignancies.
Today, EANO has over 650 members from more than 70 countries. EANO stimulates (inter)national cooperation together with our major partner societies, the Society of Neuro-Oncology in the US (SNO) and the Asian Society of Neuro-Oncology (ASNO); together, EANO, SNO and ASNO are charter societies of the World Federation of Neuro-Oncology Societies (WFNOS). The EANO Youngster Initiative provides a platform for exchange, networking and career support for young clinicians and scientists.
EANO provides multiple services to its members. We organize various scientific and educational meetings with 'state of the art' lectures covering the broad spectrum of all disciplines in Neuro-Oncology, amongst them the annual EANO scientific meeting and every 12 years the WFNOS Meeting. Further, EANO offers exclusively to its members free access to Neuro Oncology as well the Neuro Oncology Practice and the WFNOS Magazine. EANO considers the preparation of multidisciplinary guidelines as a prime task to support the development of high quality care for brain tumour patients across Europe.
