ECRI is a platform for European stroke research centres that provides the essential infrastructure for international cooperation with shared database, secure network access and advanced consent handling. ECRI is established to facilitate high-quality medical research with international cooperation.
More information about ECRI
Modern translational and clinical research requires large number of patients, clinical data, biobanks, imaging technologies, dedicated laboratory facilities and access to new technologies – all of which must be standardised, responsive to the needs of research, focused on the patient and of sufficient size to enable studies of statistical significance. Close collaboration between centres is therefore mandatory to secure sufficiently wide infrastructural support, expertise and resources. The first studies in ECRI were the Nordic Atrial Fibrillation and Stroke Study (NOR-FIB) and the Nowegian Tenecteplase Stroke Trial (NOR-TEST). The project was started by prof. David Russell but is today led by Anne Hege Aamodt. For more information about storing and securing research data click here.
