Externally Sponsored Scientific Research

Externally sponsored scientific research is research that is initiated and managed by a non-company researcher, who assumes the legal and regulatory responsibility for the conduct and management of the research as defined by applicable regulations and the laws of the country involved.

Chiesi recognises the important role that externally sponsored scientific research can play in expanding the knowledge related to a company product and/or its associated disease area(s). This research can advance science and contribute to the development of better medicines for patients consistent with the company’s overall research and global development strategies.
