COVID-19 clinical research pages

Joining forces worldwide to find a cure, a vaccine, and share research data

The COVID-19 crisis requires researchers to join forces worldwide to find a cure and a vaccine, and sharing research data is a critical step in this global cooperation effort. In this context, ECRIN has published COVID-19 clinical research pages with its national partners:


  • Review and digest the scientific literature on COVID clinical trials
  • Develop a metadata repository for COVID trials making all the non-sensitive COVID-19 trial data accessible
  • Develop a database on the regulatory, ethical and data protection fast track approvals across all European countries
  • Ensure preparedness of its national clinical trial unit (CTU) partners for COVID trials
  • Combine and coordinate national initiatives to promote multinational rather than national trials, including through connection with national funders, sponsors investigators and CTUs
  • Develop partnership with national and pan-European investigation networks on infectious diseases and intensive care
  • Outreach to investigators, sponsors, patients, policymakers, funders, and citizens
  • International cooperation and outreach, including with WHO and through CRIGH and other initiatives

Please note that the resources on this page are no longer updated. You can find relevant information on many of these topics in our tools and notably the calls page and regulatory and ethical tool
