In 2003, the European Network Adult ADHD (ENAA) was founded by J.J. Sandra Kooij, MD, a Dutch psychiatrist specialised in adult ADHD. At the founding meeting on September 19th in Prague, 20 participants from 12 countries were present. Participants were European psychiatrists and psychologists, clinicians as well as researchers, involved in this under recognised, yet prevalent disorder in adults.
At the founding meeting, the first four aims of the European Network Adult ADHD were established. In 2009, the fifth aim was added.
