2nd European Conference on Clinical Research

Regulations, technologies, risk management, data sources, patients' role ...
Will reality match expectations?

The European Federation of CROs (EUCROF) is pleased to invite you to the forthcoming European Pre-Conference and Conference on Clinical Research that will be held in Paris, France from 2-4 February 2015




This year, the Pre-Conference will be organised on 2 February 2015 by EUCROF in collaboration with PCMG (Pharmaceutical Contract Management Group).



The Pre-Conference is a privileged opportunity for representatives of the R&D outsourcing teams of the pharma industry and their counterparts in CROs to exchange and share views on key business issues and trends to develop a collaborative outcome for the benefit of both parties.

This year the Pre-Conference will examine the role of outsourcing / procurement functions in clinical development from a perspective not focusing solely on cost reduction: we will review how this group can add value through the use of category management techniques to support performance management.

The main Conference will be organised on 3-4 February 2015.

In a changing regulatory environment, this conference will be a unique opportunity for high level presentations and debates through several round-table discussions, involving all stakeholders of clinical research in Europe (Pharmaceutical industry, biotech, medical devices industry, CROs as well as other service providers, patient associations, regulatory authorities, ethics committees, key representatives from the academic sector …).  The media will be present to reflect on the most current issues in domains as regulations, new technologies, risk and performance management and data sources while patients’ role becomes every day more central.

We look forward to welcoming you in Paris!
