  • Launch of a new public-private partnership to improve clinical trial infrastructure to facilitate the development of new drugs for children in Europe: Conect4children (c4c)

    Better medicines for babies, children and young people through a pan-European clinical trial network: Conect4children (c4c).
    Conect4children (collaborative network for European clinical trials for children, (c4c) is a large European network that aims to facilitate the development of new medicines and other therapies for the entire paediatric population.
    The c4c initiative consists of a multidisciplinary Consortium that comprises academia, medical institutions, industry and affiliated partners. This pan European-multidisciplinary Consortium, with a budget of €140 million through IMI2 (Innovative Medicines Initiative 2) support of € 67 million and industry partners’ in-kind contribution of € 73 million, is one of the biggest awards funded to improve clinical trial infrastructure for children and infants.
    Over the next six years, c4c consortium aims to maximize Europe’s contribution to a key area for paediatric drug development.
    Through the c4c co-ordinated collaboration across Europe, clinical trials will benefit from consistency across implementation, aligned quality standards, co-ordinated engagement with specialist and national networks as well as rigourous strategic and operationally effective trials specifically for children and infants.
    The INCIPIT Consortium is the Italian Hub of reference in c4c and as a national paediatric Consortium, it will bring together the Italian paediatric clinical research teams, in collaboration and close link with the other National Hubs and Networks of the project.
    In the role of the coordinator centre of INCIPIT, the Paediatric Hospital Bambino Gesù of Rome (OPBG) will act as the main link between the European network and the participating Italian centers in order to “ensure cooperation and standardization of procedures with a view to improving the way children’s medicines are developed” as said professor Paolo Rossi Director of the OPBG University Hospital Department and Chairman of INCIPIT.

  • EPTRI – European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure.

    ID-EPTRI Approval
    A great success for paediatric medicines development.
    The ID-EPTRI (European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure) project, coordinated by CVBF and submitted within the INFRADEV-2016-2017 single-stage call for proposals, aimed to create the framework for a new paediatric Research Infrastructure (RI) has been successfully evaluated and granted 3.00 million Euro in funding from the European Commission.
    The project will develop a new RI, EPTRI, that is complementary to the existing Biomed Research Infrastructures acting as a ‘Paediatric Common Service’ in the ESFRI Scenario. The project involves 26 partners from EU and non-EU countries including consolidated RIs, top-level universities, scientific and clinical centres of excellence in Europe and is aimed to create a Conceptual Design Report (CDR) to realize the European paediatric RI.
    INCiPiT will actively participate into the project.
