The new edition of the Advanced Epilepsy Course Bridging Basic with Clinical Epileptology is addressed to neuroscientists, neurologists and other experts with a documented background in epilepsy research. The main objective is to train attendees to improve the critical competence necessary to design an effective research project/activity in the field of epilepsy. The Course offers lectures, interactive seminars, workshops and breakout sessions; a research project will be developed by student groups on a subject defined and assigned by the Course Directors. The progress of the project will be evaluated daily during group discussions with faculty members. Each research project will be collectively discussed and evaluated during the last day of the Course.
