E-PILEPSY is a European pilot network of reference centres in refractory epilepsy and epilepsy surgery. Its main objective is to promote a sustained increase in the proportion of European children and adults with refractory epilepsy achieving a definite cure, primarily through enhancement of epilepsy surgery in Europe, with the aim to: reduce existing major inequalities between EU countries in all aspects related to epilepsy surgery (knowledge, expertise, quality of care, policies); increase and facilitate access to epilepsy surgery for eligible European patients, by working with all stakeholders (patients, professionals, policy-makers); and harmonize and optimize pre-surgical diagnostic procedures to offer greater chance of successful surgical outcome (i.e. seizure freedom) throughout Europe.
