ECRIN: International Clinical Trials Day (ICTD) 2021- Platform Trials: Shift in treatment, testing and collaboration

Datum: 20 May 2021

Tijd: 10:00 – 16:00 CEST

Locatie: Online

In light of the current pandemic, ECRIN is organising a virtual event for International Clinical Trials Day (ICTD) on May 20th, 2021. ICTD 2021 will bring together stakeholders from across Europe and the globe to discuss the growing interest in platform trials from best practices to challenges in the European context. ICTD is open to research organisations, clinical research professionals, patient organisations, regulatory and ethics bodies, funders and industry. Platform trials, sometimes known as adaptive platform trials, allow a multitude of different treatment options (arms) to be compared with a single control (arm). They enable ineffective arms to be stopped after an interim analysis. To date, they have been used principally in the field of oncology and more recently infectious diseases. They represent the clinical approach selected by the European Commission to find a treatment for COVID-19. This new trial format raises many questions, changes our approach to conducting clinical trials and testing for appropriate treatments.

EUCROF: GDPR and Clinical Trials: Compliance and Harmonization

Datum: 25 May 2021

Tijd: 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM CEST

Locatie: Webinar

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has been with us for three years now. Yet, the industry continues to struggle through the multiple legal interpretations of how the GDPR requirements apply to the clinical research. Ethics committees, data protection officers of the clinical sites and of study funding sponsors, as well as the other stakeholders, defend their approaches. This altogether expands the gap in how a CRO and therefore, a Sponsor should process personal data to state with confidence, “We are GDPR compliant”. To enable mutual agreement on the rules of applying the GDPR requirements to clinical research and help CROs demonstrate compliance with the GDPR, the EUCROF task force developed and is proud to introduce the first clinical trial Code of Conduct. The Code is aimed at explaining the application of the GDPR to the services delivered by the CROs. If you are a data protection officer, you work in a regulatory or legal department, if you are a healthcare professional wishing to boost your awareness about protection of personal data in the trial-related domain and get some insightful tips, you are welcomed to join us on this webinar! 25 May 2021, on the day of the 3rd anniversary of the GDPR, we will guide you through the first clinical trial Code of Conduct. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about the Code and our reasons to trust in its value, as well as receive practical advice on adherence.

Lunds Universiteit: Registration and reporting of drug trials on humans

Datum: 16 June 2021

Tijd: 13:00 - 15:00 uur

Locatie: Webinar

The EU is now further tightening the rules and procedures for transparency in drug trials. In 2021, a completely new system will be launched for registration, reporting and follow-up. For a long time now, transparency in drug trials has been inadequate in Sweden and internationally, which has damaged research and its reputation. The Faculty of Medicine has therefore started a proactive initiative together with Cochrane Sweden to raise awareness of the importance of the registration and reporting of clinical trials, and to ensure that drug trials in Lund are conducted in accordance with ethical and regulatory guidelines. As part of this work, the Faculty of Medicine and Cochrane Sweden are holding an open webinar about drug trials on 16 June from 13:00-15:00. The seminar will be held in English.
