#EFIC2023 Registration

Secure your early bird ticket before:








We are hard at work planning for a big, on-site, live celebration of science and education in Budapest, Hungary on 20-22 September 2023. Our #EFIC2023 scientific programme under Prof. Esther Pogatzki-Zahn’s congress theme “Personalised Pain Management: The future is now” includes in-person meetings, interactions and round table discussions with speakers, poster presenters and peers.

The European Pain Federation EFIC would also like offer those who cannot (or who choose not to) travel the option of benefitting from some of the scientific discussion at #EFIC2023. For this, we will be recording selected scientific sessions which, based on their educational value, will then be available on-demand via the EFIC Academy Education Platform for EFIC Academy members.

Nurse, Psychologist, Physiotherapist, Social Worker or Pharmacist for example – a proof of status is necessary.

Please note that the registration category Allied Health Professional is offered by EFIC in order to subsidize the registration cost for delegates working in clinics, caring for patients and those who have limited funding. This registration category is not intended for pharmaceutical employees and physicians, even if they work in one of the fields above. Physicians and commercial company employees should register as full paying attendees. Information regarding your registration category eligibility must be made available upon request by the Registration Secretariat. Failure to provide such proof upon request will lead to your registration status being revoked and a partial refund offered.

Reduced registration rates are available to attendees working in countries classified as lower or lower-middle income Economies by the World Bank (https://datatopics.worldbank.org/world-development-indicators/the-world-by-income-and-region.html). A proof of your country of residency will be required for validation of the status (e.g. scan of passport/residency, supporting letter from the local company or hospital) at the time of registration and must be uploaded during the registration process directly on the platform.

Caution: Fraud

Be aware of fraudulent individuals and companies that claim to offer registration for Pain in Europe XIII and hotel accommodation in Dublin through fraudulent websites and/or by contacting you directly via email. These fraudulent agencies will look similar to the official EFIC 2023 Pain in Europe XIII but are not. The only official agency handling registration and accommodation is K.I.T. Group GmbH located in Berlin, Germany. The only email addresses you should communicate with will end in @efic.org or @kit-group.org.
