Mission statement

The objective of EUCROF (the European CRO Federation), a non-profit organization founded in 2005, is to promote Clinical Research by improving the knowledge, competence/expertise and skills of Contract/Clinical Research Organisations (CROs) in Europe.

The Federation represents and supports the interests of CROs in Europe towards regulatory bodies, the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device and other healthcare-related industry within the field of clinical research, as well as the medical and affiliated research community. EUCROF organises and supports training and education programs to increase the quality of clinical research and to improve collaboration and interaction amongst all stakeholders in the field of Clinical Research in Europe. Active participation in international congresses and meetings further underlines the significant role of CROs in Clinical Research in Europe.

Regulatory Authorities recognize EUCROF as the representative for European-based CROs, regularly calling upon EUCROF to contribute to the never-ending debate on the improvement of rules and regulations.
