The future is now: challenges and opportunities in clinical research in Benelux

The way how Clinical Trials are run is entering extraordinary times.

Evolutions in technology, regulations and processes bring along unprecedented challenges and opportunities for all parties involved. For the patients and their caregiver, the sites, the health care professional, the regulator, the sponsor, the vendors and CROs.

During the Benelux ePharma Day we bring all stakeholders together and will have discussions on topics ranging from common pain points to sharing best practices. We will discuss on how to ensure Benelux remains an attractive environment for Clinical Trials.

It is a great opportunity to meet top experts and decision makers from Patient Associations, Regulatory Agencies, Academic Institutions, Clinical sites, CROs, and Pharma Industry to exchange ideas, to interact and network.

Following questions will be addressed:

  • How to engage the patient
  • What can be the role of the patient advocacy group
  • How can increased computing power allow new insights through data mining, simulation and artificial intelligence
  • How does a digitalisation / eSource approach to data collection affect both sites and trial participants
  • Are we prepared for future clinical trials in a virtual environment?
  • What are the consequences of the new regulations (Clinical Trial Regulation EU 536/2014 (CTR) and General Data Protection Regulation EU 2016/679 (GDPR))
  • How can we ensure early access to innovative medication
  • How to initiate and conduct complex clinical trials
  • How to anticipate patient recruitment challenges
