Clinical Trials in Portugal
In the past, in Portugal (as in some other European Union member states), the approval timelines were somewhat protracted. However with the implementation of the Clinical Trial Directive legislation, which streamlined the submission approval process and running of clinical studies in Portugal, the approval timelines were significantly improved to competitive levels.
There are a high number of universities and central hospitals concentrated in major cities such as Lisbon, Porto, and Coimbra, with experienced staff to participate in the clinical studies.
