Healixia seminar: From CTD to CTR - How to keep Belgium attractive for early phase development in EU

From January 2023 onwards all clinical trial applications, including phase 1 trials, need to be submitted according to the new Clinical Trial Regulation (CTR). As is often the case, a change in procedures and regulations is a cause for concern. 

Therefore, in this meeting, all stakeholders are brought together and given the opportunity to express their perceived challenges and opportunities as we move into this new legislative framework.

Ample time will be available for a panel discussion in which all participants are invited to participate.

NEW as from 2023: during registration, you can now indicate to be mentioned on the online attendees list that is published on this event page.
