The EURO-CANDY project, led by the European Paediatric Mycology Network (EPMyN) and sponsored by Penta, aimed to study the epidemiology of paediatric and neonatal candidemia in Europe retrospectively over a 15-year period and to compare the epidemiology between different European countries and different paediatric populations. Twenty-five centres participated, representing 14 countries.

The study used established web-based data collection methods (REDCap), with data hosted and managed by Penta. The general aim of the study was to determine the incidence of candidemia due to various Candida species and the candidemia-attributed mortality rates in the pediatric and neonatal populations in Europe over a 15-year period and their changes over time.

This project was funded by Penta.
