Launch of SIP Thematic Network Program 2018!
Vittoria Carraro – European Pain Federation EFIC, Belgium
Our Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) platform is one of only three topics selected for the prestigious Thematic Networks program in 2018!
On 10 April, the SIP delegation represented by Vittoria Carraro (EFIC), Joop van Griensven (PAE), Anca Pop (PAE) and Gudula Petersen (Grünenthal) met with the European Commission for the kick off meeting on the Thematic Network. The meeting was an open discussion with the Commission running for over 4 hours together with representatives from all three Thematic Network Groups.
The Commission representatives have been very supportive and provided valuable guidance on how to produce a Joint Statement and how to build on other existing initiatives.
- By mid of June: submit first draft of the joint Statement
- End of June: first WebEx Webinar with the Commission and other members of HPP with the objective to call for comments and endorsement
We need the support of all SIP Partners and Endorsers to make the most of this fantastic opportunity!
In the upcoming days we will provide further guidance on how to contribute to the SIP Thematic Network and build on all the great work the SIP platform has done to date!
