European Pharmaceutical Contractor


European Pharmaceutical Contractor (EPC) is designed to fill a unique position in pharmaceutical publishing. Providing a dedicated platform of communication and information for the international pharmaceutical contract market, it consists of a series of articles and case studies written by eminent figures in contractor groups and traditional multinational pharmaceutical companies.

Each quarterly edition examines areas of importance – both economic and technical – to contract research organisations, contract manufacturers, regulatory controllers, consultants and analysts. This enables regulatory bodies to link directly with policy-makers both in major contractor groups and pharmaceutical companies, and thereby convey regulatory information directly from the governing bodies, but also ensure debate between the policy-makers and consultancy groups.

One for All

CRO Recruitment

Talent Trap

Retaining top talent is the name of the game, says INC Research's Jan Schreur. As outsourcing and worldwide strategic partnerships have increased, so too has career competition, as well as new opportunities - and for these reasons, boths CROs and clinical research professionals must up their efforts.

Labels have become multifunctional tools which are able to convey variable data in different languages, indicate first opening, product originality, support ease of use or blind study drugs. They are no longer used as mere carriers of specified contents.
