ERANET NEURON COFUND 2. Networking Groups on chronic Pain

The ANR launches in collaboration with the ERA-NET NEURON COFUND 2 a rapid action call for leading scientists in the field to establish community-led Working Groups dedicated to discuss research strategies on chronic pain. Networking groups should address cross-cutting challenges in the research field of chronic pain, to build knowledge on specific aspects, identify gaps, and find solutions for urgent issues such as interoperability of data and method harmonization. Proposals addressing hurdles and potential solutions to ensure the fruitful, homogeneous and inclusive translation of basic science into clinical practice are also within the scope of this call

The present call is supported by 6 member countries: Estonia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and UK.

This call will not fund direct research activities. Instead, Working Groups will be funded for up to 12 months with 50.000€ each to cover their expenses (e.g. meetings and travel costs). They must provide outputs of value to the broader research community, e.g. best-practice guidelines, methodological frameworks or foresight publications. International composition of the Working Groups should be envisaged. However, the coordinator of a Working Group must be from an institution being eligible for one of the funding organisations intending to support this call:


  • Estonia, Estonian Research Council (ETAg)
  • France, French National Research Agency (ANR)
  • Germany, Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
  • Italy, Ministry of Health (IT-MOH)
  • Ireland, Health Research Body (HRB)
  • UK,Medical Research Council (MRC)
Opening : 2022-09-27 at 09:00 CEST
Application Deadline : 2022-11-08 at 14:00 CET
