On 20 and 21 May 2019, the network partners of ECRAID-Plan met in Amsterdam for a stimulating discussion and a series of workshops on the future of ECRAID. The first of seven iterations in developing the business plan, this meeting was facilitated by Deloitte Monitor, together with the coordination and project teams. The meeting provided an excellent opportunity to bring together network partners involved in developing the ECRAID business plan.
Participants discussed extensively the synergies between ECRAID and the projects and networks that are part of the consortium. They debated key aspects of ECRAID’s vision and values and considered detail of the services that ECRAID may provide in the future. These include clinical research services, services related to data sharing and management, and services related to clinical research preparedness for European epidemic response. From the inputs of all the participants, the drafting of the ECRAID business plan has officially begun.
The next meeting with network partners will take place on 24 and 25 September 2019.
