The objective of this initiative was to develop an effective contract for multi-site studies launched by sponsors. This optimized process will allow sites to participate earlier in the clinical trial process, without unnecessary delays in contract negotiations.

The diversity observed in society should be reflected in clinical trials through the adequate inclusion of ethnic minorities.
