Experts from all over Europe working towards
a wider use of In Silico Trials

Lowering the barriers
to a universal adoption
of In Silico Trials

The In Silico World project aims at accelerating the uptake of modelling and simulation technologies used for the development and regulatory assessment of medicines and medical devices, by lowering seven identified barriers: development, validation, accreditation, optimisation, exploitation, information, and training.

Our mission and vision

A wider adoption
of In SilicoTrials
in the biomedical

Our mission is lowering the barriers to a universal adoption of In Silico Trials


Our vision is a future
where medical products, thanks to the use of modelling and simulation, are developed much faster and with
the highest possible safety standards
