European Network of Paediatric at the European Medicines Agency (EMA)


A network of research networks, investigators and centres with recognised expertise in performing clinical studies in children. Abbreviated as Enpr-EMA.
Information, see European Network of Paediatric Research at the European Medicines Agency (Enpr-EMA).
The RETICS “Red SAMID” is a Enpr-EMA's member, Category 1.
Enpr-EMA's members must fulfil the requirements laid down in a set of six recognition criteria:

  • research experience and ability
  • network organisation and processes;
  • scientific competencies and ability to provide expert advice;
  • quality management;
  • training and educational capacity to build competencies;
  • public involvement.

Enpr-EMA's main objective is to facilitate studies in order to increase availability of medicinal products authorised for use in the paediatric population, by:

  • fostering high-quality, ethical research on the quality, safety and efficacy of medicines for use in children;
  • helping with the recruitment of patients for clinical trials;
  • enabling collaboration between networks and stakeholders;
  • avoiding unnecessary duplication of studies;
  • building up scientific and administrative competence at a European level;
  • promoting European Commission framework programme applications.

Enpr-EMA works by allowing networking and collaboration with members from within and outside the European Union (EU), including academia and the pharmaceutical industry. The network does not perform clinical trials or fund studies or research or decide on areas for paediatric research, as this is the responsibility of Member States, the European Commission or each individual member organisation..

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is responsible for providing secretarial support to the activities of the network ensuring exchange of information between the network partners, as well as providing information to external partners and stakeholders.

Enpr-EMA regularly publishes newsletters to provide updates on its activities to its members and stakeholders:

Plataforma “Spanish Clinical Research Network (SCReN)”


The SAMID Network has joined samid ties with the SCReN-ISCIII national platform in the pediatric environment.

SCReN is a Platform that groups together 29 Clinical Research and Clinical Trial Units (UICECs) from 11 autonomous communities. It is a non-profit association, interwoven in a scientific community, in which decisions about medical practice are made, based on evidence obtained from quality clinical research. Information and the web

The objectives of this program are to achieve an advanced level of technical competence of the processes related to the development and management of clinical research, ensuring compliance with legal requirements and competence of the researchers involved in the platform's studies on methodological aspects and GCPs, etc.
To achieve this objective SCRen collaborates with researchers, cooperative groups and Research Institutes, etc. to conduct independent and multicentre clinical trials and studies. This collaboration includes networking and providing direct advice to help with the management and coordination of national or European (ECRIN) studies.
For this purpose, the SCRen Platform links various internal Programs:
SCRen channels the flow of knowledge and homogenizes the work process in the associated sites and thus increases competitiveness and promotes the integration of Spanish research throughout Europe.

Red Española de Ensayos Clínico Pediátricos “RECLIP”

The SAMID Network i the RECLIP Network.

RECLIP is the Spanish Pediatric Clinical Trials Network with the main objective of providing a fully developed and professionalized network of top national clinical trial units, ensuring an environment and an appropriate infrastructure for conducting safe and effective pediatric clinical trials.

RECLIP aims to work as the national reference hub for any international or national initiative dealing with pediatric clinical trials.

RECLIP conducts pediatric clinical drug trials in a variety of therapeutic areas, including but not limited to vaccines, infectious diseases, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, gastroenterology, respiratory diseases, endocrinology, neonatology, and medical devices.

RECLIP is created on the basis of the clinical strength of major pediatric hospitals, combined with primary health care centers and thematic research networks that develop relevant activity in pediatric clinical research.
