SCTO/SwissPedNet part of H2020 funded PedCRIN project

Conducting clinical trials in children requires specific competences and infrastructure. ECRIN-ERIC (www.ecrin.org) is a generic infrastructure for multinational trial management, in any disease area.

ECRIN receives now H2020 funding for the pediatric network 'PedCRIN', an upgrade of ECRIN to develop a common infrastructure for pediatric trial management through cooperation with the European Paediatric Clinical Trial Research Infrastructure (EPCTRI).

The SCTO resp. SwissPedNet is the Swiss partner of PedCRIN.
