For the year 2021, the BPS Award will focus on basic science. This annual award aims to recognize and foster the scientific work of a junior researcher in the field of pain. The Award will be presented on the occasion of the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Belgian Pain Society on 4th December 2021. Applications can be submitted until 08/10/2021.
The theme for 2017-2020 is ‘EFIC On the Move’ focusing on the importance of physical activity in preventing primary and secondary pain. Physical activity has well known health benefits including a reduced risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and improved mental health. What is less well known is that greater levels of physical activity and exercise are also associated with a lower risk of developing chronic pain.
