Scientific Description
The SCTO is committed to making Switzerland a more attractive location for research. Everyone involved in clinical research, including research groups from academia and industry, authorities, patients and the public, can find an arena for exchanging information and ideas at the SCTO. Together with SCTO partners, the infrastructure is working to promote clinical research in Switzerland and make it more accessible. SCTO services are designed to optimise and harmonise processes. SCTO focuses on quality, efficiency and transparency.

The SCTO itself does not offer services for the operational implementation of trials. This is the task of the Clinical Trial Units (CTUs). The CTUs provide all the services needed to smoothly conduct clinical study projects. The SCTO coordinates the collaboration among these centres.
