Clinical Studies Sweden - Forum South

Clinical Studies Sweden - Forum South (formerly R & D centre) is a support organization for medical research. Forum South provides services for clinical trials as well as for other types of clinical, epidemiological and health research.

Forum South is one of six regional Clinical Studies branches in Sweden, and is a collaboration between the Research Council and the Swedish healthcare regions.

Its aim is to coordinate the country's various clinical trial resources to ensure that they can be used more efficiently, while also providing more patients the opportunity to participate in studies, regardless of where in Sweden they are being conducted.

This collaboration will also increase the appeal of undertaking trials in Sweden.
