Vision & Mission

All Medical Practice Based on Scientific Evidence

ECRIN's vision is a society where all decisions in medical practice are made based on sound scientific evidence from high-quality clinical research. To achieve this vision, ECRIN supports the conduct of multinational clinical trials in Europe. By managing and supporting clinical trials across borders, connecting networks, and advising and implementing policy, ECRIN advances knowledge flow, competitiveness and integration in European clinical research.

Need for Independent Clinical Research

Without excluding industry-sponsored studies, ECRIN focuses its work on the conduct of independent trials, across all disease and topic areas. These trials provide unbiased assessment of preventative, diagnostic and therapeutic interventions that might not otherwise be investigated. Focus areas include:

  • Development of innovative health products
  • Exploration of new indications for authorised health products
  • Comparative assessment of efficacy and safety of approved healthcare strategies
