EFGCP Annual Conference 2018
Medical research and development of drugs is the research environment has become increasingly complex to navigate while facing ever-changing global regulations and guidance. While technological developments can help us to manage complexity and improve compliance, they come with their own challenges and there is still much to be done on the third vital element: the “Human Factor” in clinical research.
EFGCP is therefore dedicating the 2018 Annual Conference to the consideration of challenges we all face, while identifying strategies with which to keep our research compliant and efficient. Though we may compete with each other, our interests in furthering clinical development are held in common. We can all gain from collaboration. Working in a corner is no longer pragmatic for any of us: mutually beneficial collaboration is the only way to succeed.
This conference is known for describing and defining challenges, while deliberating creative solutions. The conference includes Plenary Sessions to discuss systematic approaches as well as Workshops which have been found highly effective in identifying real-world solutions.
The objectives of this conference are:
- Learning from each other: major stakeholders from the sector will be sitting around the table (researchers, sponsors, competent authorities, patients, ethicists, pharma industry)
- Sharing challenges
- Optimising our research strategies to achieve trial outcomes acceptable from all viewpoints
Our motto: where science and ethics meet.
So, join us for this unique conference to gain knowledge and network with peers!
