This section is dedicate to all types of European Initiatives that are related to the research on rare diseases.



The European Clinical Research Infrastructures Network

ECRIN is a sustainable, not-for-profit infrastructure supporting multinational clinical research projects in Europe.


Multinational clinical research is hampered by the fragmentation of health and legislative systems in Europe. ECRIN provides information, consulting and services to investigators and sponsors in the preparation and in the conduct of multinational clinical studies, for any category of clinical research and in any disease area. This is particularly relevant for investigator-initiated or small and medium enterprise-sponsored clinical trials, and for clinical research on rare diseases where international cooperation is a key success factor.


ECRIN is based on the connection of coordinating centres for national networks of clinical research centres and clinical trials units, able to provide support and services to multinational clinical research.
