The Clinical Trials and Interventions Research Governance Policy sets out the HRB’s requirements for Host Institutions (“HIs”) before, during and after the conduct of clinical trials to ensure good research governance is adhered to.

This policy will form part of our grant general terms and conditions. This policy will cover clinical trials and interventions, including regulated and non-regulated trials, where the HRB is directly funding the trials through the following HRB schemes only:

  • Definitive Interventions and Feasibility Awards (DIFA) and
  • Clinical Trial Networks (CTNs); excluding Cancer Trials Ireland (CTI).

Clinical trials funded under the current CTI programme have a separate contract that governs CTI responsibilities. Similarly, clinical trials conducted in a HRB funded Clinical Research Infrastructure such as the HRB CRFs but not directly funded by the HRB, will have a separate contract.
