Building on the foundations of COMBACTE and PREPARE, Ecraid advances clinical research in the field of infectious disease with the development of a pan-European clinical research network.


Ecraid stems from the EU-funded project ECRAID-Base. Over the five-year duration of Ecraid-Base, Ecraid will evolve into a self-sustaining, not-for-profit organisation conducting clinical research for both public and private sponsors. ECRAID-Base is the result of concerted efforts by key partners from COMBACTE and PREPARE, together with the (co-) coordinators of relevant European-funded projects, networks, and organisations.
