Funding opportunities for investigators

Multinational Clinical Trial Funding Opportunities

ECRIN can provide support to investigators for the preparation of calls for multinational clinical trial funding. If projects are funded and meet ECRIN eligibility criteria, we can subsequently offer various trial management services.
