Synergy Research Group Joins the European Forum for Good Clinical Practice

December 16, 2009

Synergy Research Group (SynRG) has become the first Russian member of the European Forum for Good Clinical Practice (EFGCP). Founded in 1993, EFGCP aims to promote Good Clinical Practice and high-quality biomedical research throughout Europe.

“These goals and objectives are very much in line with our own long-term strategies, so we’d be very pleased to join our efforts with EFGCP,” said Igor Stefanov, SynRG General Manager, in a press release.

From the beginning of its membership, SynRG became involved in EFGCP activities and plans on integrating Russia into European R&D community. In December, an EFGCP Board Meeting endorsed a plan to include Russia in the area of EFGCP influence, and, as a result to establish a trustworthy reputation of Russia as a peer ethical partner among the International Clinical Research Community.

“Being a natural member of European family; de-jure as a formal non-member of EU; and de-facto as a terra incognita for most Europeans, Russia suffers from this triple nature, as a result of ignorance, misinterpretation, and lack of trust and rapport from the European community. We are keen to change this situation,” said Igor Stefanov in that same press release.
