Research Grants for Clinical and Human Experimental Pain Research
These biennial grants totalling € 200,000 from Grünenthal GmbH are supporting young scientists early in their career to carry out innovative clinical pain research in any member country of European Pain Federation EFIC®. Individual research grants are valued at up to € 40,000 per project for a duration of up to two years.
Research Grants are intended for clinical and human experimental pain research. Research proposals on animals, computer simulations, cell lines etc. will not be considered. The decision of the awards is made independently by the EFIC® Committee on Scientific Research.
We are happy to share the news about the nomination of EFIC-GRÜNENTHAL Grant (E-G-G) winners 2014. The EFIC® Scientific Research Committee reviewed 100 completed E-G-G applications and selected 7 research projects for funding.
