The Jury of the 2019-2020 BMP Grant had the task of judging the eleven projects submitted. This task was made difficult by the overall high quality of the proposals, which all focused on the interests of patients.
According to the jury’s view, three projects promised the most benefits for individual patients and were, in the view of our experienced jury members, the most patient-driven, patient-centred and scientifically robust projects.
The eleven projects from eight European countries were shown at the BMP Grant Ceremony, on the 24th of June, 2020, which took place in a digital format.
Gudula Petersen (Grünenthal), Joke Jaarma (EFNA) and Joop van Griensven (PAE) each announced one of the winners.
The grant will be divided into three equal parts among these three winners of the BMP Grant 2019-2020:
