Transparency of clinical trial information is taking on new dimensions, resulting in trial sponsors and research organisations facing a host of new requirements in the EU. This 2017 Workshop leverages learnings from European and US experts as well as prior conference discussions, providing the opportunity to gain insights on how to meet new challenges. The programme is assembled around key themes:

  • Impact of the EU Clinical Trial Regulation and EMA Policy 0070 on trial disclosure business processes
  • Upcoming legal requirements related to disclosure of clinical research information for medicinal products and medical devices
  • Real-world experiences on implementation of the regulations, including fine-tuning and optimising processes to meet the requirements for disclosure, data sharing and data transparency
  • Approaches to navigating the patient and ethics committee interfaces, as well as interdepartmental discussions

Attendees will learn from case studies and experiences of experts and their peers.
