European Forum on Epilepsy Research – Speakers’ Presentations
In May 2013, The European Forum on Epilepsy Research took place in Dublin, Ireland, as part of the Irish Presidency of the European Union (EU). Using the excellent setting of the newly built Dublin Conference Centre, this was the first Forum on epilepsy research to be supported by the EU.
The Forum presented a fantastic opportunity to bring together the leading epilepsy researchers and policy makers in Europe to discuss a coordinated strategy for epilepsy research into the future. The ILAE/IBE Joint Task Force, Epilepsy Advocacy Europe, worked to develop the programme for the conference and agreed on three main objectives:
1. To promote and discuss the opportunities for coordinated, targeted and precise innovative research efforts that would build on the significant gains made by basic and clinical research in the past
2. To address the optimal standards of care for persons with epilepsy which are still unequally structured in Europe
3. To develop innovative research into strategies to raise public awareness of epilepsy and to reduce the stigma associated with the disease.
