Levels 1 and 2 database projects

Level 1 and 2 database studies address scientific questions that can be answered by the existing database.

Who qualifies for database queries (levels 1 and 2)

  • Continuous and significant database contribution is the key
  • A study proposal with synopsis and publication concept is always required
  • Call for participation sent by the ENETS to each center

Are there any fees for database queries (levels 1 and 2)?

  • Feasibility evaluations of ENETS DB level 1 – no fee will be charged
  • Studies and queries of ENETS DB level 2 by data reporter:
    • No fee will be charged if the data reporter query can be completed by authorised ENETS staff
    • If KKS or other external support is required, a fee will be charged/a budget must be set up.

ENETS DB Reimbursement

The ENETS DB Reimbursement is designed to promote usage of the ENETS database, encourage multi-center CoE research, and provide contracted ENETS DB centers with financial support to enter high-quality patient data into any of the current levels II-III studies.

A minimum of 20 patients must be entered into any of the ongoing studies in order to qualify for financial support.

  • A separate ethic committee approval might be necessary/must be determined
  • Funding must be secured
  • Proposals will be evaluated in the spirit of goodwill by the DB review and support board
  • Call for participation and agreement to participate sent by ENETS to each center
  • Separate contract with KKS is necessary
