Data Centric Clinical Research

With the data revolution playing an increasing role in all aspects of clinical research this year International Clinical Trials Day will focus on some of the impacts, benefits and challenges of the rise of data and technology. Different stakeholders from the community will share their experiences on topics ranging from the integration of the new technical assets, eHealth, data science, the data protection legislation and collaboration of academia and industry, among others.


The day’s events are broken down into 4 separate sessions, each with two speakers and a time for discussion led by the session moderators. The event kicks-off with Pillars of Data Centric Clinical Research, followed by relevant examples in Novel approaches to Data Centric Clinical Research. The other two sessions are on Multi-Stakeholder perspectives to Data Centric Clinical Research, one with the patient and society engagement, and one with the industry and authorities view. The final agenda will be published on the ECRIN website and social media.


ECRIN is the European Clinical Research Infrastructure Network, a public, non-profit organisation that focuses on investigator initiated multinational clinical trials as well as clinical trials initiated by SMEs. It provides sponsors and investigators with advice, management services and tools to navigate Europe’s fragmented health
and legal systems on clinical trials. ECRIN has national scientific partners in 13 countries covering more than 360 million citizens. Multi-country clinical trials mean greater access to patients, resources, and expertise, and in turn, faster and potentially more robust results.
