The Brain, Mind and Pain ‘Patient-Centred Innovation Grant’ (BMP Grant) is an initiative of Pain Alliance Europe and Grünenthal to identify, stimulate and encourage patient-centric and scientifically robust innovation in the domain of chronic pain and neurological disorders, to stimulate research and access to innovative treatments, to promote prevention and self-management approaches, to decrease stigma, and to work together to improve quality of life for people living with these disabling conditions.
The BMP Grant’s objectives focus on three working streams: access to innovative treatments, prevention and self-management approaches, reduction of stigma, and research into life quality improvements. A jury of patients’ representatives supported by scientific experts will ensure that the nominated winner addresses the patients’ challenges.
The biennial BMP Grant fund totals 90,000 EUR. This amount is distributed amongst the winning proposals, following the decision of the BMP Grant Jury for each edition.
