I am pleased to inform you about some organisational changes within PAE.
We have now moved our secretariat into Brussels city-centre, near the European Parliament. Our new address is Londenstraat 18, 1050 Brussels, Belgium. Our e-mail address will stay the same.
This means that we have had to say goodbye to Anca Pop who in the past years has been doing a tremendous job in supporting PAE. We now welcome Mariana Branco who will now take over the supporting role for PAE, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There were a couple of pragmatic reasons to do this. First, we are now close to the European Parliament which we have experienced for our advocacy work is a plus. Second, we are in the same building as the European Pain Federation (EFIC) has their secretariat and this will improve the cooperation between the two of us. Thirdly, because with this move we can afford more hours of secretarial support which allows us to be more active.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very good holiday season, joyful Christmas days and a good start to the new year.
Joop van Griensven
President Pain Alliance Europe
