Clinical Research Metadata Repository launched

The COVID-19 crisis requires researchers to join forces worldwide to find a cure and a vaccine. Sharing research data is a critical step in this global cooperation effort. ECRIN has launched a Clinical Research Metadata Repository, including COVID-19 data, allowing the discovery of clinical studies and related data objects, as for example protocol, information sheet and consent form, data management plan, statistical analysis plan, case report form, results, publications, descriptive metadata, etc.. The COVID-19 Clinical Research Metadata Repository is updated regularly through collection of data from the most important sources of information worldwide, from New Zealand to The Netherlands and from Japan to Lebanon.

For any further information on the ECRIN COVID-19 Taskforce or the Clinical Research Metadata Repository, please contact ECRIN’s Head of Clinical Operations Unit, Sabine Kläger via mail at
