An annual event for clinical data management and regulatory leaders, the EMEA Leadership Forum is a unique opportunity to share and discuss strategic insights as well as connect with peers during an engaging full-day experience embodying a culture of innovation.

This year’s edition in Warsaw we will encourage participants to embrace discomfort as a catalyst for growth and evolution in CDM practices. Throughout three collaborative tracks – People, Processes and Partnerships – we’ll explore agile change management practices and real-life stories, making the case for building strategic partnerships across the industry.
