Clinical Trial Masterclass

Online-Event | Understanding the clinical trial journey and planning ahead


This session provides you with a practical approach to laying the right foundation for your clinical trial. We help you to understand the important links between the many critical areas that will impact your trial. From design, planning and through to trial execution, our experts will discuss:

  • The overall clinical trial process and how to effectively plan for the main activities required
  • Your obligations according to applicable legislation
  • Operational considerations for data collection and management
  • Likely challenges to/considerations for operational delivery and discussion of how to select countries and sites for your trial, taking into account your commercial strategy
  • Next steps for effective trial planning
  • Introductions to trusted providers of complementary services in regulatory affairs, intellectual property law, market access, reimbursement and funding


The workshop is limited to three SMEs and is divided into two sessions. In the first session, the 3 SMEs will receive a 1.5-hour introduction to clinical trials. In the second session, a 1:1 meeting (up to 60 minutes) can be arranged directly after the workshop if participants wish to ask confidential questions. A confidentiality agreement can be exchanged before each 1:1 conversation.


How to apply for services?


Note: The online training is limited to three SMEs. The selection is made on a first-come, first-served basis. The training will only be carried out after three SMEs have registered for it.

Note: Our services are in general open to SMEs from all over North-West Europe with preference given to SMEs from one of the participating partner regions (see table of partners) for the services offered.
