Non-commercial Clinical Research in Poland

Medical Research Agency

The Medical Research Agency (MRA) is a Polish state agency, which tasks include development of scientific research in the field of medical and health sciences. Its main goal is to build an innovative healthcare system, which will contribute to a better way of meeting society’s needs through assessing which new medical technologies and therapeutic methods should be used.

Currently, the Agency implements one of the first public grant programmes that finances non-commercial clinical trials in Poland. The Agency has planned five calls for proposals for the year 2021 – two which have recently closed, concerning clinical research in rare diseases and creating and further developing Clinical Research Support Centres, and three which details are yet to be announced, concerning clinical research in psychiatry and neurology (second quarter of 2021), development of innovative therapeutic solutions that use the RNA technology (may 2021) and prevention and curing of civilisation diseases (third quarter of 2021).

Clinical Research Development Centre

The development of aforementioned Clinical Research Support Centres is one of the projects of the Clinical Research Development Centre (CRDC). The main goal of CRDC is to initiate and support the activities that aim to remove the barriers in clinical research development in Poland. From its beginnings, The Centre has been analysing and defining the scope and direction of changes to optimise the clinical research market in Poland and supporting the development of said research.

Revolution in the fur industry in Poland and in the Polish animal protection laws

“Five for animals “, as the Polish press refers to the newly amended animal protection laws, is still awaiting for the final voting. The poultry industry is demanding amendments and opposing the introduction of a ban on fur farming and a ban on ritual slaughter in Poland. Traders fear the loss of their source of income, already threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic. They explain that the new solutions will result in a loss of financial liquidity and difficulties in paying off loans taken out to build and modernise farms. The sector organisations explain that the Polish poultry industry, which is the main exporter of poultry in the EU, may collapse overnight.
