FINPEDMED Services for Clients and Sponsors
The network's clients or sponsors can either be individual investigators or research groups within the network, or external parties, such as the investigative pharmaceutical industry and its contract parties, pharmaceutical consulting companies or the authorities.
The network receives requests for co-operation and commissions from other networks operating within the EU seeking international partners. Respectively the network helps to find out foreign ( European) parties for co-operation with Finnish investigators or research programmes.
Sponsors can request that the network find suitable and interested investigators for proposed research or experts on the development of paediatric medicines or paediatric clinical trials. The network's services cover e.g. the following areas of paediatric clinical trials;
Conducting paediatric clinical trials
Co-operation (investigators and research groups)
Assistance in drawing up research project plans
Protocol design and improvement
Planning paediatric clinical trials
Consultations and statements by clinical experts
Consultations by experts in clinical pharmacology
Other services relating to the development, research and registration of paediatric medicines
The network also offers video conference services, which facilitate communication and negotiations between different investigators and research units both at a national and international level. Furthermore, the network gives recruiting assistance for research staff.
