Project description

The idea behind creating dedicated Clinical Trials Support Centres was to harness the potential of Polish public facilities engaged in clinical trials, create a favourable environment for investigators to initiate non-commercial clinical trials (thus increasing the overall number of clinical trials conducted in Poland), and offer Polish patients better access to innovative technologies. The Signatories to the Agreement – and hence members of the Polish Clinical Trials Network – are 23 Clinical Trials Support Centres.

In 2020 and 2021, the Agency announced two editions of the call for proposals for establishing and developing Clinical Trials Support Centres (CTSCs) and one call for specialised oncology and hemato-oncology CTSCs (OncoCTSCs). The principal areas of funding are:

As part of the first edition of the call (ABM/2020/3), the Agency earmarked approx. PLN 100 million to subsidise ten specialised facilities across the country.

These were:
