European Insomnia Network (EIN)

The European Insomnia Network (EIN) met again in Freiburg last autumn. Approximately 15 researchers from all over Europe and the US met and discussed new developments in the field of insomnia sleep medicine and insomnia sleep research. The European Insomnia Network was also present at the ESRS Bologna Meeting with an own symposium highlighting the insomnia field with 5 talks. Furthermore, around 25 members of the European Insomnia Network are now working on a European Guideline for the Diagnosis and Therapy of Insomnia. The guideline probably will be finished in spring next year and the aim is to publish it in the Journal of Sleep Research.
