  • Thursday, June 01, 2023 | 10am EDT (NA) / 3pm BST (UK) / 4pm CEST (EU-Central)
  • 60 min

This webinar will take attendees through the lessons learned and timelines to EU CTR approval based on experiences so far.

The new EU Clinical Trials Regulation (CTR) aims to create a more favourable environment for research in Europe, as well as maintain the highest level of standards for patient safety, and increased transparency of clinical trial information. With any new regulatory review process there can be a period of adjustment as sponsors become accustomed to the new procedures and timelines.

During this webinar the featured speakers will outline the EU CTR process, sharing their experience of early phase clinical trial submissions so far. The webinar will offer insights into where efficiencies can be gained, pitfalls to avoid and how one can work together with their CRO to leverage the EU CTR as an opportunity to improve processes, whilst complying with legal responsibilities.

Register for this webinar on the EU CTR process to gain valuable insights on how to avoid pitfalls in the early phase clinical trial submissions and navigate the regulatory review process efficiently.
