The objective of EUCROF (the European CRO Federation), a non-profit organisation founded in 2005, is to promote Clinical Research by improving the knowledge, competence/expertise and skills of Contract/Clinical Research Organisations (CROs) in Europe.
The Federation represents and supports the interest of CROs in Europe, towards regulatory bodies, the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device and other healthcare related industry within the field of clinical research, as well as the medical and affiliated research community. Organising and supporting training and educational programmes will increase the quality of clinical research and improve the collaboration and interaction amongst all stakeholders in the field of Clinical Research in Europe. Active participation to international congresses and meetings will further underline the significant role of CROs in Clinical Research in Europe.
Regulatory Authorities recognise EUCROF as the representative for European based CROs, regularly calling EUCROF to contribute to the never-ending debate on the improvement of rules and regulations.
