In the framework of EPTRI (European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure), a project coordinated by Consorzio per Valutazioni Biologiche e Farmacologiche and funded within the H2020-INFRADEV-01-2017 programme, a call for application for the preparation of EPTRI feasibility studies has been launched. EPTRI arises from the need to find answers to the serious lack of medicines for children in EU and worldwide and is aimed to create the framework for a new Research Infrastructure (RI) intended to enhance technology-driven paediatric research in drug discovery and early development phases to be translated into clinical research and paediatric use of medicines.
As EPTRI is a design study, the call for Feasibility studies is aimed to test the process, the scientific interest, the availability of requested services and facilities needed to conduct paediatric research in the areas of EPTRI competence.
All the proposals will then be assessed by the Advisory Board A to verify if:
- the proposal meets EPTRI mission and abilities;
- the proposal is likely to be completed by the end of ID-EPTRI project;
- the scientific contents are valuable;
- services and facilities within EPTRI are available to perform the work.
The call will remain open until the 15 July.
More information about the project are available on the EPTRI official website.
