Title: European Clinical Research Alliance on Infectious Diseases (ECRAID-Base).
Primary Objective: The ECRAID-Base Project aims to establish an independent pan-European clinical research network which will generate scientific evidence focused on improving the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of infectious diseases. The project will involve six perpetual observational studies (POS) across Europe; some of them conducted in intensive care, emergency care and primary care settings and related to different infectious diseases, all of them with the opportunity of integrating clinical research trials and developing into an adaptive platform trial. The common aim is the promptly respond to future public health threats.
The University of Verona is involved in the activities related to data management and will be responsible for continuing the EPI-Net surveillance network.
Secondary Objective: During the project, ECRAID-Base has evolved into a self-sustaining, not-for-profit organisation conducting clinical research for both public and private sponsors. The vision is that ECRAID's clinical research network will guide Europe's coordinated preparedness plans and response to infectious disease threats. By accelerating clinical trials and making them more affordable ECRAID-Base plans to encourage investment in infectious disease interventions.
