The organization works to promote international collaboration, and enhance the profile, science, and impact of investigator-led VTE clinical research.

  • Modernize the website through a contemporary design
  • Achieve AODA and WCAG compliance
  • Leverage a user-friendly content management system that provides ease-of-use to administrators in maintaining the website


Working with the INVENT-VTE network administration team, Sandbox redeveloped the website to ensure it met the compliance standards for the AODA and WCAG 2.0 regulations. As part of the redesign, social media channels were also applied to allow for better promotion and sharing of research, events, and news. The new website also integrated with the CLOT+ portal to allow researchers to access proprietary information and resources.


INVENT-VTE now has a modern, and accessible, website that showcases the global research and studies being undertaken in relation to Venous Thromboembolism. The website promotes funding opportunities, shares success stories and innovative medical discoveries, as well as providing information on its membership from across ten separate countries.
