What are EpiCARE’s activities?
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 activities below.

Next, this scheme highlights how the Work packages inter-relate:
ERN EpiCARE is structured around 16 working groups. Five of them focus on issues related to diagnostics, and four focus on therapeutic strategies. An Epilepsy Research Council contributes to the development and follows up of epilepsy related research projects. Five transversal WP provide a strong link between the diagnosis and therapeutic modules.
