Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 10th Annual

Clinical Trial Forecasting, Budgeting and Contracting

Innovative Strategies for Cost-Efficient Trials

February 19-20, 2020


Companies large and small are taking on more clinical trials and with new designs, it is more critical than ever to develop effective strategies for forecasting, budgeting, negotiating, and contracting both internally and externally with sites, CROs, and other partners. Finance and operations teams must continue to evolve and adapt, especially in light of new and changing regulations and laws. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 10th Annual Clinical Trial Forecasting, Budgeting and Contracting conference will showcase case studies and best practices on effective budgets and clear contracts, finding harmony among all stakeholders, and using innovative tools to streamline the process.
