Building a European Research "Network of Networks" - the ESO Trial Alliance

Some countries in ESO have established successful research networks for stroke trials. Great potential exists to increase the efficiency of conduct of investigator-led stroke trials by stroke research networks working more closely together in a joint ‘network-of-networks’. The ESO Trials Alliance (ESOTA) is a new initiative led by the ESO Trials Network Committee.  It aims to support investigator-led stroke trials by closely aligning existing stroke research networks, and to support development of new networks in ESO countries where none currently exists. The ESO Trials Network Committee has organised a symposium at ESOC 2018 to discuss the feasibility and potential of a European multi-national trials alliance. 

The symposium will review experience of several ESO countries in running stroke research networks, reflect on lessons learned from a global multi-network trials alliance in Critical Care Medicine, and will conduct a series of interactive workshops to discuss practical issues involved in setting up a multi-national ESO Alliance of research networks.

The Target Audience is clinicians from ESO countries who are leading or collaborating in a randomised trial, or are considering beginning a new trial, to prevent or treat stroke. The symposium will also be of interest to colleagues involved in the management of stroke research networks in ESO countries.
