WORKING with -  The INNODIA Managing Team and the Clinical Trial Site Accreditation Team

REPORT to - The INNODIA Managing Director

INNODIA is an international non-profit organization (iVZW in Belgian) - established in Belgium in July 2022 – stemming from an European-based public private partnership receiving funding from the Innovative Medicines Initiative 2 Joint Undertaking (IMI-JU) and supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program, the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, The Helmsley Charitable Trust, and JDRF. Thanks to this unique private-public interaction, INNODIA has become the largest European research and clinical project ever started dedicated to helping people living with type 1 diabetes. The INNODIA project has shown how academic researchers and clinicians, industry and patients can effectively collaborate to defeat type 1 diabetes. To guarantee continuity and expansion of this successful research and clinical network, INNODIA has been transformed into a legal entity with the MISSION to accelerate the development of new cures and promote disease modifying therapies for people living with type 1 diabetes, everywhere.

Our concept is to create a network of expert sites accredited by INNODIA that are listed, verified, inspected, and that will be advertised to drug developers wanting to perform fast and efficient clinical intervention trials in type 1 diabetes (all stages) with new or already approved disease modifying therapies. In addition to this core activity, thanks to the inclusion of  world-renowned scientists and physicians, and expert people living with type 1 diabetes, INNODIA offers corollary services (e.g expert advices, access to academic top-level labs, clinical grade labs, and patients’ perspective) to run innovative and “all included” clinical studies.

INNODIA’s strategy is to muster, develop and engage a network of accredited clinical trial sites and top-level research centers to become the landmark for drug developers in the field of type 1 diabetes and a reference point for the whole scientific community.

A Clinical and Research network development manager is sought to lead the organization in building, monitoring, value, and supporting the whole INNODIA network.
