Epilepsy Alliance Europe Programmes
While epilepsy surgery is an established treatment in the management of individuals with drug-resistant focal epilepsy, there is still a lack of awareness of suitable candidates and possible benefits of epilepsy surgery amongst doctors and patients.
The general objective of the pan-European research project, ESBACE (European Study on the Burden and Care of Epilepsy), is to facilitate the development of high-quality epilepsy care at all stages of the disease, equitable across EU countries.
Value of Treatment
The VoT project will show the socio-economic benefits of healthcare interventions through analysis of case studies in order to build towards closing the treatment gap and developing a workable model of care for epilepsy and other brain disorders.
EPITARGET aims to identify novel biomarkers and combinations that will define the different stages of epileptogenesis and enable clinicians to predict and diagnose early and late stages of the evolution of epilepsy for better treatment outcomes.
Radar – CNS
RADAR-CNS is a research programme that will use smart phones and innovative technology in an observational study to establish the potential for wearable devices to improve the wellbeing of people with a diagnosis of epilepsy, multiple sclerosis or depression.
