Our Main Activity: Support for Multinational Trial Preparation, Protocol Evaluation and Implementation
Overview of Trial Services
ECRIN’s main activity is the provision of support for the management of multinational clinical trials. Support is primarily provided during implementation, but also for preparation and protocol evaluation (see image below).
Overview of Access and Cost Policy
Advice and information are provided free-of-charge to academic clinical trial projects involving at least two ECRIN member or observer countries.
Access to ECRIN trial management services is subject to scientific and logistical evaluation of the full study protocol. Trial management services are provided at not-for-profit rates to academic sponsors. Again, projects must involve at least two ECRIN member or observer countries.
For more information on Access and Cost of Services, see here.
Additional Activities to Support Multinational Clinical Research
ECRIN is also involved in activities to enhance the ability of European institutions to successfully conduct multi-country clinical research. This can include, for example, the creation and maintenance of tools or databases, or the recognition/certification of high-quality data centres. (Note that these activities may also be done as part of trial management services for specific trials.)
Moreover, ECRIN is involved in infrastructure development projects that aim to further develop the European clinical research community and to facilitate multinational trials. For the full list of current (and past) projects, click here.
