In year 2007, TSN has joined as a partner the ERA-EDTA Quality European Studies (QUEST) Initiative in epidemiology & clinical epidemiology funded by the European Community. In 2008, TSN is also taking part in the ERA-EDTA's EVEREST study that aims to determine how much of the variation in RRT incidence, dialysis modality mix and patient survival is due to economic and organizational factors rather than medical factors.
