European Vision Institute Clinical Research Network is a network of European Ophthalmological Clinical Research Sites, dedicated to perform clinical research in ophthalmology with the highest standards of quality, following the European and International Directives for Clinical Research according to harmonized SOPs in order to strengthen the capacity of the European Union to study the determinants of ophthalmic diseases and to develop and optimise the use of diagnostic, prevention and treatment strategies in ophthalmology.

 

It is a platform for clinical trial research in Ophthalmology in Europe and a useful Industry resource in order to promote the development of new drugs and medical devices.

 

EVICR.net is an independent European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG) established in 2010 in accordance with the Council Regulation (EEC) n.º 2137/85.


EVICR.net Coordinating Centre is located at AIBILI, in Coimbra, Portugal.

 

At present, EVICR.net has 97 Clinical Site Members from 19 European Countries.

 

 

Each Clinical Site must apply to the Network and fulfill basic requirements such as dedicated space to perform clinical trials, qualified and experienced personnel, experience of multicentric clinical trials and to agree to implement organizational Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) according to ICH GCP Guidelines.

Each Clinical Site is submitted to an On-Site Evaluation Visit by independent auditors and has to agree to implement the necessary actions in order to become a certified Clinical Site of Excellence of the EVICR.net Network.

 

This Network has an infrastructure for management of multicenter clinical trials. It has common and harmonized organizational and technical Standard Operating Procedures, quality control and staff training according to ICH GCP-Guidelines.

EVICR.net serves as a fundamental resource for the development of translational research and particularly Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Industrial Innovation in the European Union in Ophthalmology.
