Cooperations

ECTRIMS is very pleased to cooperate with regional MS societies worldwide to facilitate communication in order to enhance research and clinical outcomes in MS. EMSP, MSIF and RIMS share the ultimate, common aspiration to see the end of multiple sclerosis (MS) and strive for optimal care of MS patients.

Every third year, the ECTRIMS congress is a joint congress with ACTRIMS, alternating between European and Northern American locations. In addition, RIMS and IMSCOGS join the ECTRIMS annual congress on a three year rotation system.
