Fondation Force is a non-profit clinical research organization that is devoted to small size pharmaceutical, biologics, medical device and healthcare companies with broad range of clinical research services in support of Phase II-IV drug and device development in Europe.

Smaller sponsors with fewer internal resources need a higher level of customer support, so they appreciate the customer focus offered by smaller CRO, like ours. We have the knowledge and processes to offer smaller sponsors with limited teams and budgets the knowledge, experience and processes to conduct successful clinical research studies. Partnering with a CRO of the same size and values is the best way a sponsor can ensure they get the right attention, staffing, metrics and reporting, and end results.

Fondation Force has also a strong expertise in managing clinical trials from academic source, University Hospitals, National or European grants and Investigator Initiated trials. For European grants, Fondation Force can appear as a participant/consortium member with his Participant Identification Code (PIC) number. Clinical studies range in size from small national single-site trials with 10 to 30 patients to European multi-sites trials with up to 1500 patients. Clinical studies cover all therapeutic areas.
