Company profile

Company profile


Founded in Prague in 2004, EastHORN is today one of the leading CROs in Europe. We operate in over 30 countries in the region with an experienced staff comprised largely of physicians and PhDs.

Originally focused in the Central European region EastHORN has expanded significantly in the last 10 years, both westwards and eastwards, now covering all of continental Europe.

This geographical growth has been driven by our clients who have requested EastHORN’s high levels of service delivery right across Europe.

Although our in-house monitoring resources are pan-European our Project Management capabilities are truly global. Our PMs are some of the most experienced and highly qualified in the industry and are frequently called upon to manage global trials in conjunction with partners and carefully chosen vendors.


EastHORN’s client-base ranges from the largest global pharmaceutical companies to the smallest virtual  biotechs. Since 2004 we have performed international studies in every major therapeutic area.

Our experience is driven largely by the availability of patient populations in Europe and covers areas such as oncology, cardiology, gastroenterology, immunology, ophthalmology, rheumatology, nephrology, metabolic, CNS, women’s health disorders and pediatric indications.

Project Teams

EastHORN builds teams that have therapeutic and country-specific expertise dedicated to achieving our clients’ goals. Thanks to this focused expertise, we are increasingly relied on to manage complex and difficult projects that are not always attractive for larger CROs.

Our corporate culture values an ethical approach in business. Our biggest asset is our staff and we are focused on attracting and developing the best talent available in Europe through a culture of empowerment and trust.

EastHORN staff turnover has been less than 5% for a total period of the past 5 years.

Quality Focus

EastHORN has a highly-developed internal Quality Assurance program to ensure compliance with ICH-GCP and the integrity of the data we generate. We develop, maintain and execute QA audit plans for our clinical operations and investigator sites. We also audit our vendors to ensure that they meet the standards that we set for delivery of their services.

As the Clinical Research industry is continuously improving and changing, it is paramount that we proactively adapt EastHORN’s processes to meet business needs and expectations. Part of this strategic vision is to ensure EastHORN’s Quality Management System and connected processes meet and exceed international standards, like ISO 9001.

Tax Credit for French Clients

EastHORN has accreditation from the French Finance Ministry for French clients to receive research tax credits for expenditure on EastHORN services.
