Abstract

The Finnish Investigators Network for Paediatric Medicines (FINPEDMED) was established in 2007, to meet the expected increase in paediatric clinical trials following the new EU Paediatric Regulation. Between 2007 and 2012, FINPEDMED received 91 trial requests, 18 trials were started, and in 24 cases, Finnish investigators were not selected by sponsors.

CONCLUSION:

This experience from Finland highlights the need for Nordic collaboration to increase expertise, recruitment base and attractiveness for sponsors.
