Meet the next generation of pain researchers

Pain Researchers
Since 2004 the European Pain Federation EFIC® and Grünenthal have facilitated the projects of scientists in the field of pain research through the European Pain Federation EFIC® - Grünenthal grant (E-G-G). This biennial grant supports innovative pain research projects by early-career scientists and physicians from any member country of the European Pain Federation EFIC.

Pain has an immense burden on the population, with one in five people in Europe living with chronic pain. Not only does it have a negative impact on quality of life, it creates a substantial economic and social burden. This Grant represents Grünenthal’s continued commitment to making life-changing pain research possible and ultimately improving the lives of people living with pain.

E-G-G received 79 applications. In a two-step evaluation, seven selected reviewers and four members of the EFIC® Research Committee Working Group on Grants and Prizes selected 5 research projects for funding:
