ESRS Advocacy Projects
The Sleep Revolution project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020, is introducing an approach based on machine learning to assess OSA severity and treatment needs. Through a set of wearables and a digital management platform, the project aims to bring together researchers, patients and healthcare professionals to provide a state of the art method of accurate OSA diagnosis and optimal treatment.
The Brain Health Mission
‘One Brain, One Life, One Approach’
The Brain Health Mission project – ‘One Brain, One Life, One Approach’ – aims to develop a holistic approach to brain health which benefits society not just through a decreased healthcare burden due to neurological disorders but through improved quality of life and productivity throughout an individual’s life course. The EAN’s vision is of a future in which individuals, populations, clinicians, and policymakers understand the benefits of good Brain Health and have the information and opportunities to preserve and recover Brain Health.
The Burden of Sleep / Wake Disorders
Excessive Daytime Sleepiness and Insomnia Project
The European Academy of Neurology (EAN) and its partners are proposing a research project on “The Burden of Sleep/Wake Disorders: Excessive Daytime Sleepiness and Insomnia“. The initial idea of this project was inspired on the European Brain Council (EBC)’s Value of Treatment projects. Currently, this research intends not only to systematically assess the scientific literature on the topic, but also to explore the socio-economic consequences of insomnia and daytime sleepiness with a patient’s centred perspective.
