Report of the Assembly of National Sleep Societies (Parma, 4-5 May 2018) – THE ESRS BOARD PERSPECTIVE

The Assembly of National Sleep Societies took place this year in Parma, the home of Liborio Parrino, Chair of the Executive Committee. It was very well attended by most of the national Presidents and board members.

As in the recent years, it has been very successful to bring together all elected leaders around Europe representing the sleep field. It is indeed a unique occasion to set up and exchange on current and future projects taking place in sleep research and medicine in European countries. It was in particular the first occasion for Dirk Pevernagie to present the new objective of a renewed Sleep Medicine Committee (see the corresponding report).

Bogdan Voinescu, the new ESRS Web coordinator presented the project under development of the new ESRS website. He showed that the new website will integrate the latest technical progresses to enhance communication between ESRS members and provide an outstanding presentation of the society.
