Who we are

The Belgian Neurological Society (BNS), founded in 1896, is the official scientific Society of the Belgian neurologists. The main aims of the BNS are to promote continuous education in neurology and cooperation between neurologists, and to stimulate clinical and translational research and international collaboration. The BNS can be consulted to advise Belgian health authorities on matters dealing with neurological issues. The BNS organizes two scientific meetings annually, with a main focus on new developments in the field of neurology and the day-to-day clinical practice of neurologists.
