The European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) is Europe’s leading scientific association for applied and translational neuroscience, with a 30-year history of fostering research and education into the science of central nervous system disorders – from behaviour, cognition and emotion to memory, sleep and pain – and the development of improved treatments.

ECNP endorses the scientific aims of the Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) to raise awareness of the impact that pain has on our societies, health and economic systems; to exchange information and sharing best-practices (pain policy making) across all member states of the European Union; and to develop and foster European-wide policy strategies and activities for improved pain care in Europe (Pain Policy).
