Management of requests for new clinical trials from industry Sponsors or Contract Research Organisations (CROs) to Norwegian University Hospitals

Close collaboration with the industry is a key factor in promoting clinical research in Norway. Our goal is to promote and improve collaboration between academic and industry partners. The appointed NorCRIN contact persons for clinical trials in Norway facilitate and coordinate contact between the academic research environments at the Norwegian hospitals and industrial partners within a variety of therapeutic areas.
