Integrating clinical research in Europe
Last changed:05.06.2014

International Clinical Trials' Day

Each year, the International Clinical Trials' Day is celebrated around the world on or near the 20th of May in order to celebrate the day that James Lind started his famous trial on the 20th of May 1747 (*www.jameslindlibrary.org).

The challenges of clinical research are not restricted to a single country, thus transnational communication on clinical trials requires initiation and co-ordination by a transnational organisation, with the objective to facilitate better clinical research, relevant to the needs of patients everywhere.

The objective is to make the International Clinical Trials' Day a focal point for international communication events, meetings, debates, and celebrations of clinical research. Every year ECRIN hosts a celebration of ICTD in a European city.

The International Clinical Trials’ Day will be followed by the ECRAN Project Meeting (Wednesday, 21 May). This is a joint initiative - ECRIN, ECRAN, ICTD and CRP -  to promote a transnational communication event on multinational clinical trials with the objective of facilitating better clinical research relevant to the needs of patients and highlight the important role of patients in clinical research.
