SCOPE Site Innovation Award

Celebrating Creativity in Site-Centric Approaches to Advance Clinical Trials for All Stakeholders

Deadline submissions are closed.


We are excited to announce our inaugural Site Innovation Award, recognizing sites and partnerships pioneering new approaches to improve clinical trials. This is an opportunity to highlight your successes and be recognized by your peers for your dedication to advance clinical research. By sharing your actionable solutions, you will inform the broader Clinical Operations Community at SCOPE.

Our definition of innovation is inclusive of low-tech or high-tech solutions, or any site operations related process improvements that effectively reduce site burden and improve a site’s ability to advance clinical research while providing patient-centered care. 

Potential areas for consideration might include:

  • Processes that improve site operational efficiency
  • Study activation innovation
  • Partnerships and/or processes improving community engagement and diversity
  • New technologies that enhance, empower, and improve operations
  • Innovative data capture, transfer, and integration
  • Innovative vendor partnerships
  • Measures that demonstrate cost savings or improved efficiencies
  • Measurable successes in patient-centered care
  • Successes in staff training, support, career ladders, retention, and/or inclusivity


We welcome submissions from sponsors, sites, site networks, academic medical centers, CROs, and service providers who are leveraging new technologies, processes, workflows, and/or partnerships in an effort to modernize clinical trials while reducing site burden.

We encourage individual organizations or teams collaborating in novel ways to submit.
