Australia-Europe NeuroTrauma Effectiveness Research in Traumatic Brain Injury
The International Initiative for Traumatic Brain Injury Research (InTBIR) is a collaborative effort of the European Commission, the National Institutes of Health, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, which aims to coordinate and harmonise clinical research activities across the full spectrum of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) with the long-term goal of improving outcomes and lessening the global burden of TBI. The first component - the Collaborative European NeuroTrauma Effectiveness Research in TBI (CENTER-TBI) project, has recently been prioritised for 30 million Euros over six years by the European Commission under the EU Seventh Framework Programme. This Australia-Europe NeuroTrauma Effectiveness Research in Traumatic Brain Injury grant (OzENTER-TBI) will support Australian participation in this unique international collaborative research program.
The collaboration between OzENTER-TBI and CENTER-TBI was formalised in a Consortium Agreement as Monash University, a listed participant in the CENTER-TBI grant proposal (participant 34).
Enabling Australian participation in the new global TBI research effort will provide Australian researchers with access to global expertise and to open access databases. Australian researchers will access the processes, protocols, and research platforms that CENTER-TBI will develop, as well as all other data.
