IICT 2023 Application: How to Successfully Address the PPI Requirement

About this online course

The investigator initiated clinical trials (IICT) programme of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) requests both in the Letter of Intent (LOI) as well as in the application itself to address the approach for patient and public involvement (PPI).

This online course is targeted towards clinical research professionals who consider applying for an IICT 2023 grant. It discusses why patient and public involvement (PPI) is particularly useful for the planning and development of clinical trials and provides hands-on advice and examples for an effective and meaningful approach.

This online course is directly linked to the IICT 2023 call. It is not intended to train participants on all aspects regarding the implementation of PPI in academic clinical research.
