Building on the success of its long-running US-based counterpart, Summit for Clinical Trials Operations Executives Europe (SCOPE Europe) is a two-day event serving clinical innovation leaders, clin ops execs, functional heads, category managers, and those responsible for the planning and management of clinical trials in Europe and the Rest of the World. The event will feature opening and closing plenary keynote sessions, five conference tracks, interactive breakout discussion groups, and networking. It is an opportunity for leaders from large, mid-sized, and small pharma, specialty pharma, biotech, vendor companies, and academic research centers to come together to share best practices and discuss the new era of analytics-driven and patient-centric trials. Topics to be discussed include protocol development, global site selection, feasibility, site management, patient engagement, enrollment planning, patient recruitment, patient retention, improving site-study activation and performance, functional/full-service outsourcing and partnerships, new regulations and guidelines, Risk-Based Monitoring (RBM), clinical technology, big data and analytics, Real-World Data (RWD), Artificial Intelligence (AI), resource management, trial forecasting, and improving overall quality and speed of clinical trials.
