Activities of the Foundation

The Mid-European Neurointerventional Club (MENC) 2020 -> postponed to 2021

MENC is a traditional regional meeting focusing on complex and difficult Neurointerventional cases and complications. MENC was first organized in 2005 in Vienna. Since then, the meeting venue has been moving from country to country each year, including the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Poland, Hungary, and Ukraine. This meeting aims to concentrate on the practice of neuro interventions under the special circumstances of that region but using the guidance of highly appreciated special guests from the western part of Europe. Each year, it is attended by 30-50 physicians from Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Ukraine, Slovakia, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Hungary. During the past 14 years, MENC became a mature meeting of high professional quality. Until now, it has been organized by direct industrial sponsorship, which is no longer available. To preserve the achievements and the spirit of the meeting (especially with the fast growth of stroke interventions), EFMINT offers its assistance taking over sponsorship. To serve this goal, EFMINT is now actively soliciting funds to support MENC 2021.
