Functional Services CRO Partnerships

January 22-24, 2020

Event Overview

The Functional Services CRO Partnerships conference is designed to assist in implementing broad portfolio based outsourcing models in the relationship between pharmaceutical concerns and the FSP. This results in higher quality, more measurable outcomes and greater cost savings. In addition to emails and telephone calls, face-to-face meetings MUST be part of the collaboration process for success to transpire. This event shines a spotlight on the challenges faced on an everyday basis. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with members of CRO constituents to exchange experiences, practices and build partnerships.
