Apply for 2010 at www.e-g-g.info
Aachen, Germany, 25 May 2010. Young scientists from across Europe can now apply for the EFIC-Grünenthal Grant 2010, one of the most highly regarded pain research grants worldwide. Provided by the European Federation of IASP chapters (EFIC) in cooperation with pharmaceutical company and pain expert Grünenthal GmbH, this grant supports young scientists in conducting innovative clinical experimental pain research projects.
“The exciting thing about the EFIC-Grünenthal Grant is that it is really driving pain research,” says Professor Giustino Varrassi, President of EFIC. “Instead of rewarding them for research that has already been conducted, the grant helps fund the applicants’ future research projects.”
Grünenthal donates a total of € 200,000 for the bi-annual grant, which is divided between the awardees. The individual grants are valued at up to € 30,000 per project.
Interested young scientists can submit their research projects online at: www.e-g-g.info until the end of 2010.
