European Narcolepsy Network (EU-NN)

The EU-NN announces the 9th European Narcolepsy Day to be held in the Old School of Medicine of Montpellier/France, 5 – 6 May 2018, organized by Prof. Y. Dauvilliers and his team on behalf of the EU-NN. The registration, programme, hotel information and application forms for young scientists can be found under

Clinicians, scientists and patients interested in narcolepsy and related hypersomnolences of central disorders are invited to join and to discuss with European specialists and patient representatives from every European country. If you have new data to present we will be happy to receive your application. A Young Scientists Award of 1500 € will be awarded for the best application. During the assembly of members elections for board members will be held.

In cooperation with the ESRS and EAN a task force of the EU-NN is presently preparing accreditation rules for “Centers of Excellence” in Europe. These centers are thought to be necessary to give patients access to faster diagnosis and therapy and a basis for negotiations with the health insurances to cover relevant costs for these procedures.
