In total, the Kickstarter awards will involve collaboration among four INVENT National VTE Networks with the aim of helping investigator-initiated studies complete recruitment in a more timely manner. Conducting clinical research in multiple countries offers the advantages of faster participant recruitment and study completion, and greater generalizability of results.

About INVENT Kickstarter Awards

The network and its partners have established the INVENT Kickstarter Awards to provide funding to support international study expansion of INVENT Endorsed Studies. These funds are intended to help Principal Investigators of academic studies endorsed by the network to initiate new international sites at INVENT-member countries. 

The goal is to support international collaboration by providing funding to enable start-up activities that are not covered by the primary funding for the study.

The next award cycle will be in Spring 2020.  Stay tuned!
