Event Overview:

Where is the optimal location to base the packaging and distribution of clinical supplies? This is a question that trial sponsors have been asking for decades. The simple answer is….it depends. The more actionable answer requires examining key study factors that can have a direct influence on clinical supply placement in conjunction with business decision drivers, preferences and even the study drug itself. The real answer is there is no single right country that will be perfect for every sponsor or every clinical trial, but there are ways to evaluate and narrow down the choices to get to the best option.

In this webinar, a clinical supply management expert will take the audience on a tour of Europe. There are two major choices in Europe – countries in the European Union (EU) and those that are geographically in Europe but not part of EU, such as the UK. By the end of the webinar, you can expect to have a better understanding of how to objectively evaluate and ultimately decide whether it is the EU or the UK that best aligns with your clinical supply strategy.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the critical factors that influence optimal placement of clinical supplies
  • Compare and contrast the fundamental differences between the EU and UK for clinical supplies
  • Learn to examine various scenarios to better understand which variables most influence country selection

Who Should Attend:

  • Supply Chain/Logistics/Distribution Management
  • Clinical Supply/Clinical Supplies Management
  • Clinical Operations Management
  • R&D Management
  • Vendor Management
