The Large Research Infrastructure (LRI) CZECRIN was officially established by the Decision of The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MEYS) LM2013034 of March 21, 2014 based on collaboration between MU and St. Anne´s University Hospital Brno (FNUSA) and forming a nationwide scientific network of partners for the conduct of non-commercial clinical research and clinical trials at the national and international level.
CZECRIN – THE NATIONAL NODE ECRIN-ERIC
CZECRIN represents the national node of the pan-European research infrastructure ECRIN-ERIC (European Clinical Research Infrastructure Network) to connect Czech clinically-oriented research capacities with the research application sphere in Europe and worldwide. The Czech Republic is through CZECRIN a full member of ECRIN-ERIC and part of the ESFRI Roadmap. CZECRIN closely cooperates with other EU infrastructures such as BBMRI or EATRIS-ERIC at the national and international level and interconnects the Czech clinical research capacities associated in national networks. CZECRIN thus supports and enables the implementation of significant transnational non-commercial clinical studies and active involvement in pan-European projects supported under FP7, Horizon 2020 or IMI2.
