A meeting entitled 'Facilitating high-quality multinational clinical research in Europe: ECRIN mission and vision' will be held at the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) on 23 October 2019. 

ISS coordinates the Italian Clinical Research Infrastructure Network (ItaCRIN), which aims to sustain independent clinical research and help investigators/sponsors promote (and join) multinational trials supported by ECRIN. Italy has been an ECRIN member since 2013. 

The purpose of the event is to improve knowledge of ECRIN and to encourage Italian participation in international trials, by promoting high-level, non-profit clinical research focused on the identification of innovati ve therapetuic strategies for the the benefit of public health. 

The conference is aimed at researchers and clinical investigators, medical doctors, grant office staff, clinical research organisations (CROs), and clinical trial unit (CTU) staff.
