EFIC Pain Scientist Network

EFIC Pain Scientist Network

The European Pain Federation EFIC represents the pain science community at European level, promoting basic, translation and clinical research into pain and providing a forum for pain research collaboration. To this end, EFIC is launching its Pain Scientist Network which you can join today!

The Pain Scientist Network is our internal listing of pain scientists, organised by their fields of research expertise and activity. Pain scientists who complete the form below will be included within the Pain Scientist Network, from which they can be connected to other researchers in their field.

Research expertise fields are organised according to:

  • Pain types
  • Population groups
  • Core research domains
  • Therapies

Don’t be alarmed by the number of categories to choose from, it should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete the form.


How will EFIC use this data?

Our ambition is to connect researchers with common research expertise to enable them to build research networks, and potentially collaborative partnerships. We also plan to bring them together virtually or via networking events at EFIC congresses. Therefore, please select only those scientific interests directly related to your research expertise.

Please note: The Pain Scientist Network is an internal listing. It will not be publicly accessible and your personal data will not be shared with third parties without your consent. You can read our privacy policy in full here.


Why should I join?


  • To network with peers working in my field – at EFIC events and on EFIC’s future online platforms
  • To make myself open to requests to collaborate on research projects in my field
  • To share research developments relevant to my peers and learn from others
  • To make myself available for EFIC projects specific to my field of expertise – e.g. new task forces or consultation responses
