The Clinical Research Initiative for Global Health (CRIGH) will be holding its second General Assembly from 20 to 21 June 2019 in Paris.
The General Assembly will be an opportunity to discuss the progress of the various project activities and to establish a roadmap for the future actions to be implemented.
Breakout sessions will enable in-depth discussion for each activity, and the coordination of proposed actions across activities. Cross-disciplinary and overarching aspects of international clinical research will be presented to inform the discussions.
Prior to the CRIGH General Assembly, the Japanese Academic Research Organization (ARO Council) - a member of the CRIGH consortium - will be holding the 4th Global ARO Network Workshop (morning of 20 June). The theme this year is 'Global Clinical Research: Integrating Quality from the Beginning'.
The CRIGH initiative aims to support international collaboration on clinical research by developing global standards and establishing a collaborative framework to address health issues worldwide.
Launched in October 2016, CRIGH will optimise clinical research programmes in participating countries, develop global standards on clinical research, promote the take-up of innovative methodology and technologies, and encourage international cooperation to rapidly and efficiently respond to global health challenges (e.g. Ebola and Zika).
The CRIGH consortium is composed of Members and Observers (research institutions, organisations, or consortia of research institutions). The secretariat is shared between the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and ECRIN.
