PONTE is a European project standing for Efficient Patient Recruitment for Innovative Clinical Trials of Existing Drugs to other Indications.

PONTE aims at providing a platform following a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) approach that will offer intelligent automatic identification of individuals eligible to participate in clinical trials (concerning their safety and clinical trial efficacy). The trials will be designed and planned through a flexible authoring tool, enabling semantic interoperability of clinical care information systems with clinical research information systems and drug and disease knowledge databases, as well as the appliance of advanced data mining techniques and enhanced learning algorithms.
