Past EFIC Presidents

The European Pain Federation EFIC’s position as the leading pain science organisation in Europe has been made possible through the leadership of our Past Presidents, starting with Professor Ulf Lindblom in 1993. EFIC strives to provide guidance to the next generation of clinicians and push forward pain research for the benefit of patients everywhere. Our Past Presidents have embodied these aims and mobilised the European pain community through EFIC’s projects and activities.
