The European Neuroendocrine Association (ENEA) was founded in the early 1980's to promote, assist and integrate neuroendocrinology in all its aspects, both basic and clinical, initially throughout the European continent. ENEA promotes basic and clinical research in neuroendocrine physiology, pathophysiology, oncology and therapeutics as well as in disciplines affected by neuroendocrinology like metabolism and psychiatry.
ENEA organizes biennial meetings to discuss and explore the latest research and concepts in current neuroendocrinology and also to educate and motivate endocrinologists in training and scientists contacting basic and translational research in neuroendocrinology and related fields.
ENEA has the following subcommittees:
- Workshop and Study Committee. Every second year ENEA together with the WSC organizes a specialized workshop on a topic of high interest. This workshop is accompanied by a clinical study.
- ENEA Young Researcher Committee
