ECRIN's 2017 celebration of International Clinical Trials Day (ICTD) will take place in Lisbon, Portugal on 19 May 2017.
The theme of this year’s event is ‘Data sharing and reuse: attitudes and practices in multinational clinical research'.
The aim is to engage with the public, scientific community and decision makers on issues related to (multinational) clinical trials in Europe, and to address issues related to data sharing and re-use in particular.
University Claude Bernard Lyon - Eudipharm, OrphanDev (part of ECRIN's French national partner, the French Clinical Research Infrastructure Network or F-CRIN), and F-CRIN's training and education unit are co-organising the 4th edition of the training course on 'Orphan drug & rare disease - Accelerating access to therapeutic innovation'.
While the methodology remains the main focus of the programme, this year will also be the opportunity to address in particular the European Medicines Agency (EMA) tools in drug development and the issues around personalised medicine.
