The primary objective of EPICLUSTER is to establish a collaborative framework for the coordinated actions of epilepsy research in Europe, based around shared partnerships and research priorities.

Key objectives are:

  • Maintaining the cooperation started under EpiXchange that brought together several large-scale epilepsy research projects and bring in new partnerships/projects and stakeholders.

  • Agree shared priorities and work toward addressing these including in the area of (1) data sharing (large scale sequencing, preclinical, clinical data), (2) preclinical studies and improving translation, (3) access and sharing of research infrastructures and training.

  • Develop and pursue funding of joint research programmes of scale in Europe and beyond.
