The European Pain Federation EFIC recently completed their office move to the EU quarter of Brussels. Advocacy, especially the SIP project have been crucial to EFIC for some years now.
Their new office is 5 minutes’ walk from the European Parliament, meaning that meetings with politicians and other political influencers will become much easier. As well as SIP, EFIC are involved in EU-funded Innovative Medicine Initiative (IMI) projects as well as engagement with other medical societies and institutions, which necessitate meetings in the EU quarter.
The new office is a great asset to the pain medicine community, and EFIC welcome allied stakeholders to visit and eventually to consider using the space for meetings. The building has a board room, meeting room and a space for sublet. Contact secretary@efic.org for more details.
