Template Clinical Trial Agreement sponsored research with a medicinal product

The co-operating top-clinical training hospitals (STZ), Nefarma (industry association for the Dutch branches of pharmaceutical companies), the Netherlands Cancer Institute - Antoni van Leeuwenhoek (NKI) and the Association of Contract Research Organizations in the Netherlands (Acron) have reached agreement on a template for Clinical Trial Agreements on sponsored research with a medicinal product in Dutch hospitals.

You can download a Word- and a pdf-version of this template from the theme page on clinical research on the Nefarma website,

The parties hope the template will increase the tempo of the commence of this type of research. The template for the Clinical Trial Agreement replaces individual contracts in which each pharmaceutical company and each hospital applies its own conditions.

Nefarma expects the template Clinical Trial Agreement will facilitate the participation of Dutch hospitals in international research with a medicinal product. Furthermore the expectation is that investigators and patients will be involved earlier in new treatmens and medicinal products.
