Conference Overview

The Global Clinical Trials Connect 2022 will provide a platform to discuss on the futuristic advancements in clinical trials and clinical research. This multidisciplinary program involves broad participation of people from clinical trials community from around the globe who are focused on learning more about clinical research, clinical trials planning and management.


The Pharma and Bio-Tech companies are consistently evolving and new clinical studies, technologies and advancements in care and treatments have augmented the efficiency and at the same time the complexity of clinical trials has increased, with tests being carried out in a highly structured and closely coordinated manner. It is high time that we look into innovative strategies, new technologies, effective and quality collaborations to address these issues, which can cater to the needs of the patient and the industry.


This conference intends to focus on the global health and clinical trials around the world. Bioethics, regulations, patient recruitment, site selection, real-world data, data integration & Strategy, outsourcing, vendor management, quality (QbD) in Trial Conduct, risk-based monitoring, clinical auditing & financial planning and other significant topics that play a key role in clinical trials will be addressed along with innovative sessions on new technologies, effective and quality collaborations.

This program will certainly educate health care scientists on trial design, operations, organizing trials, research computing, regulatory aspects, report on clinical trials and gain a better knowledge of the implications of clinical trials in prevention, diagnosis, clinical trial-related ethics and disease treatments.


The summit will facilitate an invaluable networking opportunities with decision makers and focus on real case studies, insightful presentations and round tables.


It gives us a great pleasure in welcoming you to the Global Clinical Trials Connect 2022.

It helps keeping all of us connected and offer a place for sharing new knowledge and interacting within the research community.

Marketing Manager

The agenda was the best in the industry for this topic. The calibre of speaker was superb, and the content delivered was equally good. If the agenda is always this good, then this is a must attend event for anyone needing to calibrate themselves and make sure they know and understand the challenges around modern clinical trials and feel like you're in the right place to find the solutions.

Janssen Pharmaceutical
Associate Director Global Clinical Development Operations Trial Lead

Well organised event, with very interesting speakers and a lot of interaction not just during the breaks but also during the meeting. I enjoyed that the event

Executive Director Biostatistics, Global Biostatistical Science, Center for Design and Analysis

There was an excellent range of topics discussed, and I particularly enjoyed the focus on patient perspectives in how clinical research sites can optimise their interactions with patients by using a range of communication tools. The conference provided me with many opportunities to network with the other participants.

Clinical Trial Center Spa
Head of Site Management Organization (SMO) Unit

Great contents, high quality presentations and superb speakers, able to involve the audience and to make serious topics catchy. I found this event to be really useful and informative, with valuable networking and the right commercial side: well centered and non invasive
