Welcome Message

Dear colleagues and friends,

In response to the rapidly evolving events surrounding COVID-19, the 2020 Annual Postgraduate Course (11th cycle – 3rd year) of the European Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery (ESPN) in Varese, Italy, will be postponed to the following year at the same venue and city, during the dates 24-29 May 2021. The decision has been taken in light of the coronavirus outbreak and considering that we have to keep public health a top priority while following government orders. We would also like to inform you that all confirmed registrations will be automatically transferred to the next year's organization.

These are indeed challenging times for all of us internationally and locally but, we are confident that any difficulties can and will be overcome when working together for a comeback!

We look forward to welcoming all of you to Varese in Italy 2021.

In the meantime, stay healthy and safe.

Dr. Laura Valentini Grazia
