ID – European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure

Project Acronym ID - EPTRI
Funding Program H2020 (Research Infrastructures)
Budget €3,000,000

The main objective of this project is to design a framework for the European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure (EPTRI), a new RI aimed to enhance technology-driven paediatric research in discovery and early development phases to be translated into clinical research and paediatric use of medicines.

The starting point of the proposal is the serious lack of medicines for children in EU and worldwide as well as the lack of a development model for paediatric medicines that integrates technology-driven aspects with clinical trials. The design for this infrastructure will be based on the following main pillars:

1) To harness efficiency and delivery of paediatric research activities and services strengthening collaboration within the scientific paediatric community.

2) To be complementary to the existing RIs covering the current gaps, while avoiding any duplication.

3) To represent a one-stop-shop and common services for advice in paediatric drug development matters.
