ECRIN - European Clinical Research Infrastructure Network

European Research Infrastructures against COVID-19

ECRIN helps and supports the global effort to find a vaccine and a cure for the COVID-19 virus. ECRIN and it’s members are ready and able to provide expert advice and resources for (multinational) clinical trials on COVID-19. And ECRIN works closely together with other European Research Infrastructures to optimize collaboration and to speed up scientific research on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.
