Designing the framework for a new European paediatric research infrastructure

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1625214820721{padding-top: 15px !important;padding-right: 15px !important;padding-bottom: 15px !important;padding-left: 15px !important;background-color: #8bd9e9 !important;}”]

EPTRI is working to enhance the whole paediatric research framework at EU level, which is now at a very crucial point, and to make these efforts valuable in the interest of children’s health.

To create a very strong EU environment supporting the paediatric research,  EPTRI is lobbying with EU bodies, MEPs, National Authorities, Industry Associations, Research Institutions, Patients’ Organisations, and collaborates with relevant paediatric projects and initiatives (PedCRIN, c4c, EJPRD).

We have taken a specific action with reference to the inclusion of topics related to paediatric research in the EU programmes, as we really believe that this is the right moment to act, also in view of the enormous funding opportunities offered within both Horizon Europe and the Next Generation UE.

Allocating resources for the health of children shall be a priority of National and European policies. It is our responsibility not to waste time and opportunities to work for the wellbeing of children, our future generation!

While we continue to work around the implementation of common services in collaboration with the ESFRI Biomedical Research Infrastructures (in such areas in which similar scientific interests and research capacities exist), the EPTRI paediatric services are now ready to be tested by the users.

The EPTRI surveys are still active to continuously mapping the available expertise and gathering the interest of new paediatric research units to join EPTRI. You can find them at the following links:

  1. Human Development and Paediatric Medicines Discovery
  2. Paediatric Biomarkers and Biosamples
  3. Developmental Pharmacology
  4. Paediatric Medicines Formulations and Medical Devices
  5. Underpinning clinical research

An International Clinical Practice Guideline based on Systematic Reviews to guide early intervention in children aged 0 to 2 with Cerebral palsy (CP) was published on Jama Paediatrics Journal.
CP is the most common childhood physical disability. Early intervention for children younger than 2 years with or at risk of CP is critical. Now that an evidence-based guideline for early accurate diagnosis of CP exists, there is a need to summarize effective, CP-specific early intervention and conduct new trials.
