Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am pleased to invite you to the Clinical Trials Symposium, 4th edition organized in Romania under the patronage of European CRO Federation (EUCROF) and Romanian Association of Companies Performing Clinical Research (ACCSCR).

After 2 and half years of unmet challenges in the field of clinical trials, operating under pandemic environment, we have been confronted early this year with a grim reality of a military conflict in Europe. In spite of all such realities it is important to stay strong and continue working hard and finding solutions to best serve patient´s interests and needs.

COVID-19 has forced us to modernize the clinical trial ecosystem, implement new technologies and become even more patient centric. Certainly the technological progress is continuing and the clinical trials are transforming at high speed.

In context of the military conflict, many international clinical trials, in particular late phase programs involving or planning Russia have suffered major impact, as such, new strategies for patient enrolment are underway. Romania, similar to its neighbouring countries in Eastern Europe can play a major role in compensating potential gaps in international clinical development caused by the current geopolitics. By this, Romania can enable its patients fast access to most innovative therapies, while helping pharmaceutical companies to advance their programs most efficiently.

The Clinical Trials Symposium offers unique opportunities to patient associations, private and academic research centres, regulatory bodies from various countries and industry representation to meet in a hybrid format (in person or virtually) and confer on most stringent topics related to:

  • Updates on the new legislation for clinical trials in Romania
  • The impact of the war in Ukraine on Clinical trials worldwide and in the CEE region
  • Regulatory environment in EU for decentralized & hybrid clinical trials
  • Experience and take aways from performing clinical trials in Romania during pandemic
  • Digitization of clinical research in Romania
  • Innovative trial designs in early phase drug development
  • Importance of patient´s voice in clinical research

We are confident that this edition will host again hundreds of professionals from all over Europe working in the field of clinical research!

We kindly invite you to register as soon as possible! Don’t miss the early bird registration!

I look forward meeting you face to face and virtually as well on 18th of November 2022 for this new edition of ANNUAL CLINICAL TRIALS SYMPOSIUM!
