Outsourcing in Clinical Trials Europe 2022

4-5 May 2022
Hyatt Regency Barcelona Tower
Barcelona, Spain

Clinical trials are enormously complex and expensive undertakings. A clinical trial is a portion of the entire drug development process, from inception of the drug compound to bringing the drug to market. Globally, it is estimated that over US$40billion is spent on clinical trials each year.

A pharmaceutical company can expect to have spent $350m to get one drug to market, based on research conducted with 98 companies over a decade. On average, approximately 33% of the trial budget will be spent on investigative site (hospitals/universities etc) costs (reimbursement to investigators and site owners). Internal costs (resources deployed by the pharmaceutical company) may account for approximately 25% of the budget. The remainder is usually accounted for by outsourced services (central labs 5%, CROs – various, as high as 62% of trial budget in some cases).

Arena International are delighted to announce Outsourcing in Clinical Trials Europe will be returning to Barcelona for our in-person event.
