Shaping an influential leadership in the Belgian Clinical Research Landscape
BeCRO is a professional non-profit association of Belgian Contract Research Organisations (CROs) which are supporting the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical devices industry in clinical research and development of new products. The result of the combined industry efforts, including BeCRO members, is the availability of new treatments and therapies from which patients can benefit.
BeCRO is actively representing its members in respect of other
stakeholders, including the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical
device industry, the regulatory authorities, the investigational sites and
last but not least the patients. The goal is also to create public
awareness of the importance to conducting clinical trials in Belgium.

BeCRO actively supports its members in this area by providing the latest industry updates and dedicated training in clinical research.
