A Competency Framework is a standard mapping of competencies to roles, used to help organisations to assess and manage individual and collective work performance.
Within our Clinical Research environment, it defines the competency domains and the associated cognitive skills necessary to conduct a high-quality, ethical and safe clinical trial.
Based on the developments of the Joint Task Force for Clinical Trial Competency (2013) and on our expertise in Clinical Research, at ECCRT we have taken the Competency Framework concept a step further to fit your specific needs. Indeed,
in the ECCRT Competency Framework, we mapped out 10 competency domains and
> 70 competencies with > 40 key positions and our +100 courses portfolio.
Competency domains include, inter alia:
- Scientific Concept and Research Design
- Ethical Participant Safety Consideration
- Clinical Studies Operations (GCPs or ISO 14155)
- Study and Site Management
- Leadership and Professionalism
Do you want to boost your team development with your own Competency Framework? Together we can work on a project plan and bring you and your team a step forward.
Together with you, we will make an analysis of the ten competencies within your team and find where training is needed to fulfil these competencies.
What is the role of the Competency Framework in Risk Reduction?

Vincent Baeyens- speaker at the ECCRT Open House: “ECCRT has put a lot of attention in understanding our challenge and responding considering what we had and what we wanted to accomplish. ECCRT did certainly meet our expectations. We now have an objective and global view on the different roles and competencies within GCO.”
