The Universitat Rovira i Virgili, in collaboration with the research institutions affiliated to the Campus of International Excellence Southern Catalonia (CEICS), is launching the Martí i Franquès research grants programme, a public-private cooperation designed to attract highly talented doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers to work on exciting research projects.

This programme honours the scientist Antoni Martí i Franquès (Altafulla, 1750 Tarragona, 1832), who made remarkable contributions not only to the fields of biology, physics and chemistry, but also to the economic development of Southern Catalonia.

He was the first scientist to accurately establish the composition of air.


Individuals with intellectual disabilities can feel and suffer from pain. However, very little is known about how individuals with intellectual disabilities cope with and experience pain.

As a matter of fact, since they cannot communicate efficiently, their suffering may go unnoticed, and therefore they are at a higher risk of developing chronic pain and disability.

Therefore, in order to help this population it is critical to make pain matter and understood by health care professionals and their families.

The long term objective of this project is to make pain in individuals with intellectual disabilities matter, understood and better.

  • Specifically, the aims of this project are to (1) develop valid and reliable questionnaires, and translate, validate and culturally adapt already available questionnaires to be used with Spanish speaking individuals, that would be free of use;
  • and (2) develop an educative program to help health care professionals and family members deal with chronic pain related problems.
