BERC-Luso and LiberHetica meet by zoom

November 2020

On the 13rd of November, the BERC-Luso project is disseminated in the European context, at the level of the annual meeting of the European Network of Research Ethics Committees (EUREC), by Professor Maria Alexandra Ribeiro, interim President of the National Ethics Committee for Clinical Research (CEIC), representing Portugal and a member of the board of this Network.

EUREC is a network that brings together already existing national Research Ethics Committees (RECs) associations, networks or comparable initiatives on the European level. The network promotes capacity building and assistance for local RECs to cooperate in the EU European Research Area. As an umbrella organization the network interlinks European RECs with other bodies relevant in the field of research involving human participants like the European Commission's ethical review system and the European Medical Association (EMA). In the context of the expansion of EUREC's scope of activities outside Europe, this Network seeks to establish new points of contact with China and Africa. In this context, the BERC-Luso project and the LiberHetica project were disclosed.

The LiberHetica project aims to increase  the ethics capacity of oversight for clinical trials in Liberia by establishing European-African collaborations that facilitates implementation of efficient processes, harmonized procedures, standardized guidelines and educative training programs.

The articulation of BERC-Luso projects with LiberHetica, EUREC and other networks at European and African level is an asset in the context of promoting berc-luso ethical and regulatory training objectives during the project, but also after its expiry.
