Webinar on clinical studies in Horizon2020 proposals


The new Work programme 2016/2017  Health, demographic change and well-being call is open for submission of proposals. A proposal including clinical studies has to fulfil several requirements and to address several specific issues, such as: how to involve clinical partners, how to set up the budget and what regulatory and safety issues need to be considered at proposal stage. Some topics of the Work programme offer the opportunity of conducting clinical or observational studies. For five of these topics the clinical trial template has to be used in addition to the proposal template.

As Health NCP or proposal applicant you may have questions which details you need to submit with the proposal, and may also be interested in finding out about the type of support you can get at this stage from ECRIN, the European Clinical Research Infrastructure Network.
