About ICTD

In 2005, the International Clinical Trials Day (ICTD) was launched to commemorate the day when James Lind started his famous clinical trial on scurvy in 1747, May 20th, and laid the foundation for modern clinical research.

Celebrated every year on or around May 20th, ICTD is an opportunity for organisations, clinical research professionals, and the public to acknowledge the achievements that result from clinical research and to discuss various trial topics. ECRIN hosts an annual celebration of ICTD, bringing together European and international stakeholders.
