3rd IICT call: Submit your letter of intent by 1 September 2017


In 2015, the SNSF has introduced a special programme for Investigator Initiated Clinical Trials. The programme offers targeted support for clinical trials that are outside the areas of industry focus. The call is limited to prospective, randomised, controlled, interventional, multicentric studies.

In 2017, a data management plan (or DMP) for the lifecyle of the research results will for the first time be an integral part of any IICT research proposal. The SNSF also requires that data collection and quality assurance are in line with international standards. These processes should therefore be supervised and supported by an academic institution, such as a Clinical Trial Unit.

CTU Bern is looking forward to support and collaborate with researchers who are planning to submit a project. Interested researchers are kindly asked to contact CTU Bern as early as possible so that CTU staff members can provide the best possible support:

We are looking forward to many fruitful collaborations.

Important deadlines:
  • Submission of letter of intent: 1 September 2017
  • Submission of proposals: 1 November 2017
