MULTITOUCH ITN

The MULTITOUCH ITN aims at providing high level training to a new generation of Early Stage Researchers (ESR) in the multidisciplinary field of haptics. MULTITOUCH will explore how tactile feedback can be integrated with auditory and visual feedback in next-generation multisensory human-computer interfaces (HCI) combining tactile, auditory and visual feedback, such as multisensory tactile displays (TD) and multisensory virtual reality (VR) setups, with the aim of producing an enriched user experience. During the project, the ESRs will improve current knowledge on how touch integrates with the other senses in conditions of active touch, i.e. when tactile input is generated by active contact with the environment (e.g. tactile exploration of the surface of a display, tactile exploration of VR environments).

QSPainRelief

QSPainRelief (H2020 RIA) aims to develop effective drug combination treatments for the improved relief of chronic pain. A quantitative systems pharmacology (QSP) mathematical modelling approach will be used to identify and validate more effective therapeutic interventions by smart combinations of existing drugs. The ultimate goal is to personalise and maximize pain relief for individuals suffering from chronic pain while diminishing side effects.

IMI-PAINCARE

The IMI2 Paincare Consortium is composed of 40 participants from 14 countries; 6 are EFPIA (European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations) participants with strong traditions in pain research and development, 23 are internationally renowned academic and clinical institutions, 5 are specialist SMEs with cutting-edge technologies, 3 are patient organizations and 3 are professional pain/anesthesia societies.

The Consortium addresses three important topics:
- Patient reported outcome measures to improve management of acute and chronic pain (PROMPT);
- Pharmacological validation of functional pain biomarkers in healthy subjects and animals (BioPain);
- Improving translation in chronic pelvic pain (TRiPP).

Samar Hatem

As a clinical researcher, my aim is to assess the efficacy of non-pharmacological approaches to alleviate pain and to improve the functional outcome in patients with unilateral chronic pain of the upper extremity.
