PedCRIN tools for the setup and management of paediatric clinical trials

September 2021 3 minutes English

PedCRIN developed a series of tools and procedures to support the setup and the management of multinational neonatal and paediatric clinical trials in Europe. These tools are developed to train and support researchers and clinicians so they can establish, run, and manage both paediatric and neonatal multinational clinical trials in a more effective and easier way. The removal of barriers to trial management will speed up the evaluation of new and improved therapies.

The Paediatric Clinical Research Infrastructure Network (PedCRIN) is a four-year project launched on 1st January 2017. It brings together the European Clinical Research Infrastructure Network (ECRIN) and the founding partners of the European Paediatric Clinical Trial Research Infrastructure (EPCT-RI) to develop capacity for the management of multinational paediatric non-commercial clinical trials. PedCRIN will effectively bridge paediatricians and other partners across Europe (and internationally) to combine resources and expertise to conduct and manage robust studies, while minimising risk and protecting the child participants.

PedCRIN has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, under grant agreement number 731046.
