Clinical trials remain key to the development of evidence‐based medical practice. However, they are becoming increasingly complex, mainly in a multinational setting.
The survey performed among the member and observer countries of ECRIN aimed to describe the harmonisation of academic clinical research processes at national level, to facilitate the exchange of expertise and experience among countries, and to identify new fields of action.
Currently, the ECRIN member countries offer a very solid base and collaborative spirit for further aligning processes and exchanging best practices for clinical research in Europe.
