EpiCARE is a European Reference Network. European Reference Networks (ERNs) are virtual networks involving healthcare providers across Europe. They aim to facilitate discussion on complex or rare diseases and conditions that require highly specialised treatment, and concentrated knowledge and resources. We will describe in more detail EpiCARE’s projects below.

You can read more about each work package on this page.
This figure illustrates the structure of the ERN EpiCARE, which is divided in 17 working groups. Five of them focus on issues related to diagnostics, and four focus on therapeutic strategies. The Research Council contributes to the development and follows up of epilepsy related research projects. Transversal tasks forces will complete the work of the various WG.
The ERN EpiCARE is working on different research projects as well: EJ PRD, the ERICA project, ECET… Each project has a dedicated website page to describe it further.
