6ο Clinical Research Conference

Patients’ Access to Innovation and Clinical Studies

The Clinical Research Conference was organized for the 6th consecutive year with the aim to highlight once more the various ways in which clinical studies may benefit patients, the national health system and Greek economy, and at the same time propose solutions to eliminate hindrances which afflict the clinical research sector in our country.

The conference was organized by Ethos Events, in cooperation with the portal www.virus.com.gr and Pharma & Health Business magazine (www.phb.com.gr) and took place on 14 December 2017 at the Athenaeum Intercontinental hotel.

This year’s event was attended by renowned speakers from Greece and abroad, State officials and representatives from various competent organizations (such as the Hellenic Pharmaceuticals Organization, Regional Health Authorities, hospitals), patients’ and medical organizations’ associations as well as executives from Greek and international pharmaceutical companies which conduct clinical studies.
