There are six hospitals in Switzerland with Clinical Trial Units (CTUs) that originally received seed funds from the Swiss National Science Foundation. The CTUs provide all the services needed to smoothly conduct clinical study projects. More information about all services offered by the CTUs is available in our fact sheet under Publications.
The SCTO coordinates the collaboration among the CTUs and supports them in their activities.
Making Switzerland a more attractive location for research requires an optimisation and harmonisation of processes at national level. To this end, in 2017 platforms were set up which serve as excellence centres. Read more about our platforms under Services.
