We are happy to announce that we are partnering with the Clinical Research Unit (CRU) of the Academic Medical Center (AMC) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The joint goal is to enable more AMC researchers to use Castor and at the same time better facilitate these researchers with regards to data management.

AMC & Castor partnerpricing

Within the partnership, the maximum price per study per year for AMC researchers is reduced to €450 per year, regardless of the size of the study. At the same time, the CRU will provide guidance for AMC researchers within Castor itself and proactively present Castor within its research application portfolio next to tools such as OpenClinica and LimeSurvey.

AMC researchers will continue to receive the Castor support they are used to. Additionally the CRU will offer the below services within Castor:

  • a check on study design. Verification of the functioning of data entry screens, validation checks and other aspects, both from a data management and from a technical point of view;
  • a check on the suitability of the structure of your dataset in relation to the planned statistical analyses.

You can read more about these services on the internal CRU website or contact the Head Data Management of the CRU directly. Researchers are of course also welcome to contact us directly.
