Application Form Guidelines and eligibility criteria



The European Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Clinical Trial Network (CTN) provides an infrastructure for institutions, clinicians and scientists to work collaboratively across Europe to improve patients’ care in anaesthesiology, intensive care, perioperative medicine, emergency medicine and pain medicine.


A CTN grant of up to € 30,000 is provided for Study costs. The grant is intended mainly to cover travel costs for steering committee meetings, the use of a statistician, and possibly study coordination assistance at the institution of the chief investigator (CI). In general, no case money for participating centres is foreseen. In addition to the financial support, the ESAIC offers to the CI and steering committee members a valuable coordination support package: administrative, technical and logistic help for all phases of the study: preparation of documents, centre set-up and coordination, case report forms and cleaning of the data. ESAIC CTN is managed by the ESAIC Research Committee (ESAIC RC) and reports to the ESAIC Board for its actions and activities.
