Czech Clinical Research Institute

CCRI is a privately owned, fully independent Prague-based (Czech Republic) full-service CRO. Due to extensive previous experience within the broader CEE region, we focus on clients (sponsors) operating within all of Central and Eastern Europe.

With a steadily expanding network of highly qualified clinical research professionals, CCRI specializes in project-based staffing solutions for phases I through IV. We are ready to prepare a tailor-made solution fitting your needs whether it be providing freelance staffing (outsourcing), taking over part of a study or taking over a study completely. CCRI, together with Talentor Life Sciences, also offers recruitment support for permanent staffing vacancies for highly qualified and motivated professionals and executive staff.

As Czech Republic has many reasons to be a CEE hub for clinical studies, CCRI also acts as your consulting platform for clinical studies coming to the country. When working with CCRI, you can utilize our advisory competencies, local clinical / medical related information database, our in-depth knowledge of study-sites and investigators as well as Life Sciences’ labor market advisory, accounting, payroll, tax and legal advisory services. In order to provide you with high quality, reasonably priced services, CCRI cooperates with independent vendors and experts (such as clinicians, universities and hospitals, biostatisticians and data managers etc.) to secure the best possible cost-benefit ratio.

What makes the CCRI client experience special is our inherent focus on simplicity. The company philosophy and values emphasize a “back to basics” approach using common sense and only those processes and tools that are either obligatory due to regulatory requirements or necessary to speed up and streamline the study. We are obsessed with quality, though we do not believe quality is a product of overengineering.
