Looking back at OCT Nordics

We have included some of the most foremost and innovative pharma/medical device companies and CROs within the industry this year; including AstraZeneca, Novo Nordisk, Coloplast, Karolinksa Institute, Leo Pharma, Afyx therapeutics and many more. Further to this, presentations were given from regulatory bodies to provide a wide scope of expertise and lessons learnt from experience.

Day one, we opened the conference with improving collaborative terms between CROs & sponsors delivered by the Outsourcing Program Director, Global Medicine Development at AstraZeneca, Marie Sundin. As well as chairing the event, Marie shared insights into establishing an excellent clinical operational relationship between CROs and sponsors to enable better conflict management. This was followed by talks on delegating funds and legal challenges in contracts.

Day one had the audience interacting through ongoing questions on international clinical trials, digitalizing trials, using data and analytics to optimize trials. The end of day panel discussions were hugely successful and included topics on highlighting frequent challenges in running trials and funding.

Throughout the second conference day, we listened to case studies including preparing for the new EU clinical trial regulations, securing and maintaining funding and discussing the development of medical device applications in clinical trials. The day ended with interactive roundtables including challenges in collecting clinical data to gain CE mark.  Lastly, delegates had the opportunity to further discuss the key issues identified in the conference as well as building networks.
