Event description
This event will mark the launch of a strategic report which explores the future investment in clinical research needs in Ireland

About this Event

This event will mark the launch of a new strategic report entitled the Future Investment in Clinical Research report. This report examines the optimal future clinical research infrastructure in Ireland and outlines a plan for growth.

Primary stakeholders in clinical research will be invited to attend the event including those who contributed their views and opinions to the report. These comprise patient representatives, Government, HSE, funding and enterprise agencies, industry representative bodies, the directors of the Irish clinical research facilities/centres and the board and staff of Clinical Research Development Ireland.

Background

The Future Investment in Clinical Research Initiative was developed on the premise that a well-resourced and functioning clinical research capability is an essential part of any national infrastructure. It benefits patients, the healthcare delivery system and academia, and is a unique selling point for the very large life-sciences sector operating in Ireland.

Coordinated by CRDI, the first meeting of the FICR initiative was held in March 2018 and brought together key stakeholders in clinical research including patient representatives, health, funding and enterprise agencies (HSE, HRB, EI, SFI and IDA Ireland), industry representative bodies (IPHA, IMSTA, BioPharmachem Ireland and the Irish MedTech Association), the directors of the Irish clinical research facilities/centres and the board and staff of CRDI.

While acknowledging the valuable efforts and funding investments already made by stakeholders, it was agreed by all in attendance that significant opportunity now exists to enhance the level of clinical research in Ireland and that the issue of resourcing to enable this opportunity to be realised needs to be reviewed.

It was also agreed to establish the Future Investment in Clinical Research Steering Committee with a mandate to strategically examine and define the optimal future clinical research infrastructure, support, capacity and capability.

Several meetings were held throughout the past year, the feedback from which has culminated in the findings and recommendations outlined in the Future Investment in Clinical Research Report.
