PtCRIN is a Portuguese Clinical Research Infrastructure Network initiated under the scope of the European Project ECRIN-IA: European Clinical Research Infrastructure Network - Integrating Activity (FP7).
In 2012, we started as an individual-based network of 10 health care units, one non-for-profit clinical research organization and 3 universities with expertise in the clinical research field and a consortium contract was signed. (MEMBERS page). 

This organizational model ensures the commitment of health care units in clinical research and strengths the cooperation between policy makers and stakeholders.

PtCRIN Core Team responsible for the management office is currently based at Nova Medical School, in Lisbon.
