Clinical studies

Clinical trials are the key to medical development. On average, patients who participate in clinical trials get access to experimental treatment several years before the treatment becomes available on the market.

Inven2 is responsible for managing the agreement and all financial aspects of clinical studies. We focus on efficient and quick agreement processes, in order to make our hospitals become attractive partners for the industry. In 2021, Inven2 managed 417 ongoing clinical studies and 177 new studies were registered in that year.
