Research Funding

To support groundbreaking and innovative research in the spine care community, EUROSPINE's Task Force Research (TFR) administers research grants to research projects in clinical and non-clinical studies associated with spine disorders. 

EUROSPINE research grants

EUROSPINE research grants drive innovation and improve patient wellbeing. They provide funding and recognition for researchers to address challenges, make discoveries and improve spinal health.

These grants encourage collaboration and interprofessional research, leading to breakthroughs in diagnostic techniques, surgical procedures and non-invasive therapies. By supporting spine care projects, they advance understanding, promote evidence-based practice and improve patient outcomes.

Spine research grants empower researchers, cultivate expertise and drive positive change in patient care. They stimulate innovation and contribute to a better future with improved mobility, reduced pain and enhanced well-being.

Clinical Research

Clinical research is defined as epidemiological population, and clinical research studies, including randomised clinical trials, cohort studies, and outcomes measure/development studies that relate to the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and/or prognosis of spinal disorders. Qualitative studies and healthcare research studies are considered clinical studies.

Non-Clinical Research

Non–clinical research is defined as all other studies (animal studies, basic science, biomechanical studies, applied studies, ergonomic studies, public health research, cost-benefit studies, and other studies) that are conducted on some aspect of spinal disorders.
