CRIC office – also hosting a PhD student
Copenhagen Trial Unit (CTU) has employed Cand. Scient. San. Marija Barbateskovic as a PhD student. Marija comes from a 5 year employment at the Cochrane Colorectal Review Group where she has worked as a scientific search coordinator and editorial assistant. In CTU Marija will work with systematic reviews on interventions to be addressed in future trials coordinated, and supported by CRIC: haloperidol or benzodiazepines for treating delirium in the ICU and different oxygenation targets for intensive care patients. Further, Marija will update a systematic review on proton pump inhibitors after the finalization of the SUP-ICU trial which is expected to start randomizing patients after the summer 2015. Marija also aim to investigate possible relations between clinical and statistical heterogeneity in systematic reviews of interventions used in the intensive care setting. As a part of the CRIC secretariat as well Marija will also try to assist in the design of the upcoming trials and implement the knowledge gained from her work with the systematic reviews in the planned protocols. We very much welcome Marija in the CTU and the CRIC and wish her all the luck in the years to come.

When do we get the money granted by Innovation Fund Denmark?
A collaboration agreement between partners must be in place before requesting first payout from the fund.
Collaboration agreement to be signed ASAP
A collaboration agreement document is on its way – Week 8 or 9 – to all partners to be signed and returned to CRIC. A signed solemn statement concerning the collaboration agreement must be forwarded Innovation Fund Denmark no later than March 31st (3 months after project start). Please, contact CRIC if you will be challenged by this deadline i.e. need to present the collaboration agreement and/or statement to third party members or committees for signature, which may be foreseen to delay the process.
How to get the money granted by Innovation Fund Denmark?
Once the signed solemn statement has been forwarded to Innovation Fund Denmark the “CRIC administrator” (financing controller at Funding Administration Rigshospitalet), will request and hopefully receive the total grant for 2015, where after money transfer to partners account can start to take place. As an optional service to all partners CRIC will offer full management of partner accounts, or support if you as a partner prefer to handle you own partner account. Please, if you chose to handle you own account provide contact information (i.e. e-mail, phone nr.) to CRIC of your local financial controller at your in-house Funding Administration to pave the way for a smooth and soon forthcoming money transfer to cover up for your local program activities. An account chart that will match your budget will be provided soon.
