ECTRIMS organises in collaboration with MSIF (Multiple Sclerosis International Foundation) an annual fellowship alumni meeting. With this meeting of fellows and alumni, mentors and ECTRIMS/MSIF Executive Committee, Board and Council members, ECTRIMS and MSIF aim at offering a platform for promoting research training and exchange of information as well as creating networking opportunities.

It started with a welcome address by the President of ECTRIMS, Prof. Xavier Montalban and Peer Baneke, CEO of MSIF, followed by 8 short talks from current and past fellows of ECTRIMS and MSIF, presenting their research projects, training activities, and reporting on their fellowship experience. The talks were moderated by Prof. Xavier Montalban for ECTRIMS fellows and by Dr. Dhia Chandraratna, MSIF Head of Research, for MSIF fellows. The programme of the meeting is available here.
