Achieving Operational Efficiency in Clinical Trials

Wednesday 19th – Thursday 20th September, 2012, Brussels, Belgium

‘Clinical trials in the US and Europe are in crisis’ - Anonymous

A clinical trial is the key process that will enable drug developers to market their drug. Just over a decade ago the process of getting a drug to market took approximately 10 years. Now, it takes 20 years with the costs increasing at an average 2.4% annually. We are now reaching the point where the cost of clinical trials is becoming unsustainable. Achieving operational efficiency is the only means in which you can maintain the costs and ensure successful trials. With huge pressures from the EMA and FDA, clinical trial managers must effectively manage all costs to ensure their budgets and timelines are controlled.

Arena International’s 3rd Annual Achieving Operational Efficiency in Clinical Trials conference is a key event that will enable you to get a glimpse of your competitors and peers’ achievements and techniques. If you have trouble concerning patient recruitment, feasibility, data management, study start-up, then this is the place you should be. Give yourself and your team the opportunity to develop strategies that will maximise your trial outcomes.
