History
The European Network of Paediatric Research at the European Medicines Agency (Enpr-EMA) is a network of research networks, investigators and centres with recognised expertise in performing clinical studies in children.

Enpr-EMA aims to foster high-quality ethical research on quality, safety and efficacy of medicines to be used in children. It does this through networking and stakeholder collaboration with members from within and outside the European Union (EU).

Following a call for expressions of interest in 2010, the European Network of Paediatric Research at the European Medicines Agency (Enpr-EMA) published in January 2011 a full listing of applicants for Enpr-EMA membership.  To date a total of 32 networks and centres have submitted self-assessment reports. These documents are published and are categorised according to ability to fulfill the minimum criteria.

16 networks and centres in category 1 are now members of Enpr-EMA (those in category 2 are currently undergoing clarification before membership of Enpr-EMA while those in category 3 do not currently qualify for membership)
