Clinical Trials Innovation Exchange
The Clinical Trials and Innovation Exchange is a part of a series of events focused on the pharmaceutical industry that will serve as the hub for clinical trial executives to meet, share ideas, benchmark and discuss solutions to real world problems. It will offer cutting-edge, interactive learning opportunities for pre-qualified practitioners to gain actionable insights and continue to improve the clinical trial process.
This exchange is designed for senior clinical and research executives who are responsible for leading the execution of sound clinical trials within the established costs, quality and time constraints. They are also responsible for driving operational excellence and building collaborative relationships with all stakeholders involved.
Being at the forefront of drug development and being innovative during the process are important issues that are on clinical trial executives’ minds. Executives working within clinical trials have the opportunity to improve ways to productively produce studies that will be successful and meet important milestones. As clinical trials continue to be an essential part of developing medical treatments, executives in this field are pressed to find innovative solutions to recruit patients, meet regulations and use the appropriate technology to complete trials in a timely manner and avoid exceeding the designated budget.
This is accomplished, in part, by:
- Developing patent engagement and partnerships
- Understanding and capitalizing on new technologies and solutions
- Being at the forefront of an industry and discovering innovative ways of conducting trials
Clinical Trials & Innovation Exchange presents the opportunity for delegates to network and build partnerships with peer level professionals, while learning new ideas and strategies that they can replicate within their own organizations, to build a best practices culture. Clinical Trials & Innovation Exchange has the following distinguishing features:
- BrainWeave® discussions
- Exclusive senior level attendance
- Strategic conference sessions
- Customized itinerary
- One-on-one business meetings
