19-Jan-2018 EFGCP Annual Conference, Feb-2018, Brussels

Join us at the EFGCP Annual Conference 2018!

20 and 21 February 2018, Renaissance Hotel, Brussels, Belgium

Few would disagree that our 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.

Speakers at this conference come from all aspects of clinical research, including those who inspect on behalf of our governments.  Every speaker has the mission to help delegates remain in compliance, while optimising our research strategies to achieve trial outcomes acceptable from all viewpoints.  In addition, the workshops will provide the hands-on opportunity to identify solutions and hear other people’s voices and opinions. Delegates will also have access to faculty members during ample networking time built into the programme.

We hope many of you will take time out of your busy research schedules to consider possible process improvements in this conference, and perhaps to step off the ever-accelerating hamster wheel of complexity and non-compliance.
