The European Network of Centres for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacovigilance (ENCePP) is a voluntary collaborative initiative coordinated by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to strengthen post-authorisation monitoring of medicinal products in Europe. The Network directly aims to build capacity to conduct research in Europe and through the guiding principles of transparency, scientific independence and robust methodological standards to increase trust in post-authorisation medicines research.

For further information on the network’s objectives and activities please see About Us

At the core of ENCePP is the publicly available Database of Research Resources providing free access for study sponsors and investigators to details of research centres and data sources in the field of pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance. The Database comprises two indices, an inventory of research centres/networks and a registry of data sources. All information contained in the Database is entered and maintained by the research organisations and/or the data providers themselves.

ENCePP Registry of Data Sources

The ENCePP Registry of Data Sources is an electronic index of available data sources applicable to pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance. The Registry is available to the general public. It serves as a resource for researchers and potential study funders seeking to identify data sources they would consider as potentially suitable for secondary analysis to answer specific research questions.

Adding a data source to the Registry does not equate to joining ENCePP. If you are interested in joining the Network please click here.

Note also that inclusion in the Registry does not imply granting access to a data source.

In addition, adding a data source does not affect in any way registration of existing ENCePP partners in the Network.

Please press ‘next’ at the bottom of the page and continue to complete the questionnaire, if:

  • you and/or your organisation maintains data that can be used for research in the field of pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance, and
  • you would like to include your data set in the present registry.
