21 March 2023 - EU CTR and CTIS: Getting the most out of it

Webinar Topic

EU CTR and CTIS: Getting the most out of it


Webinar Date & Time

21 March from 03:00 PM to 04:30 PM (CET)

Webinar Overview

As of January 31st, 2023 all research on human subjects with medicinal products in the EU needs to be submitted via the EMA Clinical Trial Information System, the CTIS. Up to now, in the current transition period, organizations focussed on the setup of the optimal organization model in CTIS, and the preparation for their first submissions via the system.

In this Webinar, Marieke Meulemans and John Popp explore and share the “lessons learned” from the first year of the transition: the challenges, the most common mistakes, and how to solve them. We will discuss transition strategies, look at the opportunities of EU CTR and CTIS and how to get the most out of it for your organization. Regardless of whether you are working for a CRO, pharma company or biotech, the EU CTR is an opportunity to streamline, automate and improve processes to remain efficient, while complying with legal responsibilities.
