Forum Östergötland is a collaborative initiative from the Faculty of Health Sciences and Region Östergötland.
Rigorous regulations apply to all kind of research involving humans. The regulations ensure that high quality, credible data and not least, the safety and integrity of the individual research subjects, are maintained.
All researchers or research teams with a connection to Linköping University, Region Östergötland or the southeast region of healthcare are welcome to seek advice from Forum Östergötland for clinical research projects. Scientific problems can be discussed in an early phase of project planning as well as in ongoing projects. However we do not have the resources to support undergraduate projects or resident projects. There are special terms for support to PhD students, such as biostatistics. 
At Forum Östergötland, we can offer you:
  • Counselling at the start or underway of a clinical research project
  • Scientific counselling
  • Statistic and epidemiologic counselling
  • Monitoring, project support and randomization for an additional cost
  • Courses in GCP, statistics, study protocol etc.
We work under full confidentiality. For more information, please refer to the Swedish site or contact us below.
