The EACD2017 conference in Amsterdam has been very successful. About 960 participants from 60 countries were involved The atmosphere in the conference was remarkable: there was lots of interaction between participants from different backgrounds and countries. The time scheduled for the 150 posters each day was used to get into contact with fellow researchers and to discuss new research developments. These personal contacts at an international conference are important for exchanging knowledge and building up collaboration in research and patient care.
In 2016 EACD co-hosted the 28th Annual Meeting with the 5th International Cerebral Palsy Conference (ICPC) and the first meeting of the newly established International Alliance of Academies of Childhood Disability (IAACD) at the International Conference on Cerebral Palsy and other Childhood Onset Disabilities “CHALLENGE THE BOUNDARIES” in Stockholm.
