Pain Alliance Europe is happy to announce the second edition of the Brain, Mind, and Pain Patient-Centred Innovation Grant with the support of Grünenthal and partner organisations. The launch last year was very successful – see report of the award ceremony.

The 2019-2020 Call for Proposals will be available online for a period for 6 months starting 1st July 2019.
