to facilitate multinational clinical research. We provide sponsors and investigators with advice,
management services and tools to overcome hurdles to multinational trials and enhance collaboration.

ECRIN will host a meeting in Paris on 12 October 2016 to discuss the CORBEL user survey. The survey was sent to medical research communities to capture their needs in terms of tools and services.

Meeting participants will include members of the medical infrastructure / users forum (MIUF), a body of scientific experts that has been created as part of CORBEL. (ECRIN is leading the work package in charge of this activity.)

During the meeting, the MIUF will review survey responses, and based on the results, start to develop communications strategies to foster collaboration between medical research communities. 

CORBEL is funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement no. 654248).

Date:

ECRIN will organise the second workshop of the patient-level data task force in Milan from 6 to 7 October 2016. The task force aims to develop a common framework to provide access to anonymised, patient-level clinical trial data for re-analysis / meta-analysis in Europe. This initiative is in line with a recent editorial from the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors requesting a data-sharing plan as part of the study protocol (N Engl J Med 2016; 374:384-386).

CORBEL is funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement no. 654248).
