European Union Center - TBI collaboration


Traumatic brain injury (TBI) represents one of the greatest unmet needs in medicine and public health worldwide. To help impact on the treatment and prevention of brain injury at an international level, NISAN is part of the European Union CENTER-TBI collaboration.

The collaboration includes researchers from over 40 centres from across 19 countries with expertise in brain injury. The collaboration aims improve characterization and classification of TBI, and to improve health care delivery and treatment by identifying the most effective clinical interventions to inform treatment recommendations and guidelines. This is the largest in the world TBI epidemiological project.

The collaboration is being funded by the European Union Commission. Through the sharing of anonymised data (to enable more intricate analyses which larger patient numbers), resources and expertise, this landmark project aims to greatly enhance knowledge and improve outcomes for people following a brain injury.
