There is a growing demand for highly specific clinical trials. The Nordic-Baltic countries and regions are too small on their own to be able to supply large enough trial groups. Through cooperation the Nordic-Baltic region can position itself on the clinical research testing map to the benefit for researchers, entrepreneurs and society as a whole. The idea of the project is to take advantage of the existing knowledge and experience of the universities, hospitals and companies in the Nordic and Baltic areas to create a dynamic and comprehensive platform for high quality pre-clinical and clinical research. ScanBalt Clinical Research Network is envisaged to link flexibly pre-clinical animal study centres and clinical facilities in the 21st century ICT infrastructure in the Baltic Sea area.

Frontpage report

As a result of the project completed mapping of the competencies and resources in the field of preclinical research, clinical trials, and mobile ICT solutions for conducting clinical trials was carried out. Based on this a database for the purpose of competencies and partner search was created. The project results support the understanding, that the patient recruitment network in the region is very needed to be competitive in clinical research. However, the scope of the continued activities should be more focused and the goal should be establishing a financially feasible and working network that could be used for patient recruitment in the overall ScanBalt region, as this was identified to be the hardest problem arising from the relative smallness of the region’s countries in the world scale.

Project duration: 01.03.2005 - 31.03.2006
