We support value-based research
As a world leading healthcare company, we are committed to support continuous evidence generation. We do it by donating grants and gifts-in-kind to support value-based research, providing educational grants, as well as supporting third-party research through the so-called Investigator Initiated Studies Programme.
An important part of our clinical research work is the Investigator Initiated Studies (IIS) programme through which we support external research projects. IIS projects are usually initiated and conducted by investigators from different countries all over the world and on a variety of products and indications. Each year a number of applications are submitted to us.
The scope of your research is determined by your own research interest. Studies can include a variety of clinical and experimental research areas. Type of studies are for example:
- Clinical investigations
- Case series
- Quality Improvement Projects (QIPs)
- Preclinical studies
