Over 30,000 clinicial trials are being conducted by pharmaceutical companies around the globe and more than 60% are being outsourced to CROs

The presentation will focus on how sponsors evaluate bids from CROs and provide you with some practical tips on how to improve your proposals.

We will discuss recent research in reading/eye-tracking studies and general linguistics and how to use the results to gain a leading edge when writing a proposal. We will also introduce an easy system that can help track where a reader will look in your proposal, and how much time they will spend on each section.

Examples of common mistakes when a writing proposal will be included, as well as how to produce a high end document which many contributors can work securely on at the same time.

There is no second place in writing proposals. It is all about winning the bid! So how can you improve your chances to win?
