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
