Facilitating European Clinical Research
ECRIN, the European Clinical Research Infrastructure Network, facilitates multinational clinical research, through the provision of advice and services for the set-up and management of investigator or SME led clinical studies in Europe. ECRIN unites national networks of clinical trial units across Europe, through its scientific partners, to fulfil its vision of generating scientific evidence to optimise medical practice.
Supporting clinical research
We provide our 13 Member and Observer countries with diverse trial support services
and contribute to infrastructure development projects with European and international partners.
Adaptive Platform Trial Toolbox
The Adaptive Platform Trial Toolbox aims to collect the accumulated knowledge, experience, and resources (collectively termed as ‘tools’) from multiple projects and trials into a practical and guided toolbox to facilitate planning and conduct of future adaptive platform trials in any therapeutic area.
Clinical Research Metadata Repository
The Clinical Research Metadata Repository is the free online tool to help scientific researchers find documents and data linked to a clinical research study, and to obtain information on the accessibility of those results.
Rare Diseases Clinical Trials Toolbox
The toolbox aims to collect the accumulated knowledge, experience, and resources generated by previous projects and/or research infrastructures and other organisations into a practical and guided toolbox to help understand the regulations and requirements for conducting trials, with special focus on investigator-initiated trials for rare diseases.
A series of tools and procedures to support the setup and management of multinational neonatal and paediatric clinical trials in Europe were developed through the PedCRIN project.
Risk Based Monitoring Toolbox
The Risk-Based Monitoring Toolbox provides information on tools available for risk assessment, monitoring and study conduct, the institutions where they are used, and other relevant details such as links and user feedback.
Regulatory and Ethical Tools (CAMPUS)
ECRIN CAMPUS is a central resource for information about clinical trial regulatory and ethical requirements covering 22 European countries and multiple study types such as clinical drug trials, clinical investigations of medical devices, combination drug-device studies and nutritional studies.
EULAC Clinical Trials Helpdesk
This tool aims to provide information on regulatory and funding agencies regarding clinical trials in Latin America and Europe, and to facilitate the establishment of partnerships in clinical trials on personalised medicine across countries and regions.
