The 8th Annual Outsourcing in Clinical Trials Europe 2018 was held last 15th-16th May 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. It is the leading clinical trial outsourcing conference in Europe which aims to promote better collaboration between trial sponsors and solution providers, and provide attendees with practical take-aways that can be applied to their own operations.
