The European Paediatric Translational Research InfrastructureEPTRI, is a project that arises from the need to find answers to the serious lack of medicines for children in EU and worldwide. It aims to propose developmental models for a future research infrastructure focused on paediatric medicines, integrating technology-driven aspects with clinical trials.

The project ID-EPTRI, coordinated by Consorzio per Valutazioni Biologiche e Farmacologiche (CVBF), aims to design the framework for the new RI providing a conceptual design report (CDR) of EPTRI describing the scientific and technical requirements as well as the key components of the new RI. Five technical and scientific domains have been identified:

  1. Paediatric Medicines Discovery
  2. Biomarkers
  3. Paediatric Pharmacology
  4. Formulation Science
  5. Underpinning Paediatric Studies.

ID-EPTRI started in January 2018, is a 2-year project and has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement No. 777554.
