GLOBAL CARDIOVASCULAR RESEARCH FUNDERS FORUM

FACILITATING INTERNATIONAL CLINICAL TRIALS

The GCRFF Multinational Clinical Trials Initiative is a collaboration between major international funders of cardiovascular clinical research:

  • British Heart Foundation
  • Dutch Heart Foundation
  • German Centre for Cardiovascular Research
  • Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health, Canada
  • National Heart Foundation of Australia
  • National Heart Foundation of New Zealand
It aims to facilitate the coordinated consideration of investigator-led multinational clinical trials by providing a mechanism through which researchers can submit a single proposal for a multinational cardiovascular trial, for timely consideration by individual research funders. Each funder can then decide whether they wish to fund the element of the trial in their jurisdiction, with a full understanding of the wider components of trial design and funding. The aim is to deliver the following benefits:
-
  • Help researchers in different countries to collaborate more effectively and plan ambitious, practice-changing clinical trials for successful delivery from the outset. 
  • Allow individual research funders to input into the trial design at the outset, in contrast to the current situation, where additional funders are often approached late after initial support for the trial has been secured from one funder, and the trial has already started.
  • Reduce the risk to the funder(s) because there is greater assurance that the trial will be deliverable and costs are spread.
Please note: the GCRFF Multinational Clinical Trials Initiative provides a mechanism to support better coordination of consideration of multinational trial funding. It does not fund trials directly, nor does it guarantee funding by individual funders.
