    Goals / Remit

    EARN is a voluntary network of experts in the field of outcome research, particularly registries and other real world big data.
    EARN members consent to support regulatory purposes and public health goals in a transparent way.
    EARN members support to develop and implement best practice in quality monitoing of medical devices in the entire EU and beyond.
    The initial focus was on arthroplasty and other orthopaedic devices, but EARN had decided in it´s General Assembly 2019 to welcome cooperation with other fields of medicine and medical devices.

    Main EU files targeted

    At present the focus is on implementation of legal requirements at registries in order to support contribution to the Medical Device Directive.

    Other financial info

    EARN does not have a regular budget or financial contributions from external stakeholders.
    EARN defines itself as a network of experts concerning real world evidence and it´s interpretation.
    In the past we had to experience several attempts by "interested parties" to receive insider information and/or influence expert decisions on safety and performance of medical devices as well as processes for appraisal of clinical data concerning CE-certification.
    On that background we have decided in our General Assembly, that we reject any financial contribution in order to avoid any potential conflict of interest.
    Any member or project partner covers expenses from it´s own resources.
    Full transparency on potential COI has to be disclosed inside the society and projects conducted.

    For further information or questions, please contact the EARN President.
