PedCRIN call for multinational clinical studies in children and neonates

PedCRIN call for multinational clinical studies in children and neonates

ECRIN has launched a call for pilot clinical studies to receive trial management support from the Paediatric Clinical Research Infrastructure Network (PedCRIN) project. The goal is to support the multinational extension of paediatric studies on medicinal products having already secured funding in the coordinating country. The 18 member countries of the PedCRIN consortium are eligible to apply.

Children are still an understudied patient population. Clinical studies are needed to generate evidence supporting medical practice in children and neonates, and international cooperation is critical to obtain rapid and robust results optimizing healthcare strategies. However, conducting multinational paediatric clinical studies requires adequate infrastructure. The PedCRIN project is funded by the European Commission to upgrade the ECRIN infrastructure, through the development of a paediatric module.

The present call for application is intended to select, based on scientific excellence and evidence for feasibility, multi-national investigator-initiated paediatric or neonatal interventional clinical studies on medicinal products. The funding of the study should be already secured in the coordinating country, including the study coordination tasks (study design, protocol development, statistical plan and analysis, data management, safety management, general coordination). The PedCRIN funding will therefore be used to support study management tasks in countries other than the coordinating country3, enabling multinational patient recruitment.

Deadline for application: 2nd May 2017
