Due to the currently unpredictable situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic the organizational committee has decided to hold the 8th ESO-ESMINT-ESNR Stroke Winter School 2021 (www.strokewinterschool.com) as an exclusively virtual teaching course. The 8th ESO-ESMINT-ESNR Stroke Winter School will be held from 2nd–4th February 2021 at the University Hospital Bern, Inselspital Bern, Switzerland. The virtual version of Stroke Winter School 2021 will still be endorsed by the European Stroke Organisation (ESO), the European Society of Minimal Invasive Neurological Therapy (ESMINT) and European Society of Neuroradiology (ESNR).

The daily lecturing and teaching program by national and international experts in all subspecialties of acute stroke treatment will be held in a digital and virtual format. We already established an web-based online teaching platform at the Neurocenter of the University Hospital Inselspital Bern (www.neuronews.ch).
In analogy we are on the way to build up a new platform for the Stroke Winter School 2021 with several new additional and innovative features. With this new interactive platform we will not only be able to stream lectures from specialists from all over the world, but will also include live interactive tutorials, live case discussions, virtual stroke workflow simulations and an online library. The platform will offer the participants to discuss hot topics right on the way and to stay in contact with the World Top Shots in Stroke Medicine. The sponsoring industry will be represented within the platform and participants and industry will be able to get in contact at any time!

Applicants will be selected based on their CV and motivation (registration via website). Selected candidates will need to confirm that they will participate at the course. The fee for this years course will be reduced to 100 Euro.
