    EU Clinical Trials Information System training programmes

    Printer-friendly version

    The way clinical trials are conducted in the EU will undergo a major change when the Clinical Trial Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 536/2014) comes into application.

    One change is the introduction of the EU Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS), through which all communication related to a clinical trial application and assessment will take place. The Clinical Trials Regulation, Regulation (EU) No 536/2014, will become applicable as CTIS goes live, which is anticipated in December 2021.

    The European Medicines Agency has developed different training programmes to future CTIS users. The State Agency of Medicines is suggesting the companies involved in the conduct of clinical trials to participate in the trainings.

    1. For Micro, Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and academia EMA is organising a two part webinar. On 22/02/2021 CTIS access management, user management and different roles in CTIS will be presented. On 4/03/2021 CTIS functionalities will be focused on - how to submit and manage a clinical trial application. The webinar will include presentations by speakers from EMA system experts and presenters from SME and academic institutions, demonstration of the system and opportunities for questions and answers.
