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.

Industry Advisers

Set up in December 2009, EPC’s board of Industry Advisers help develop the content of the magazine, using first-hand experience to keep the magazine focused on the latest developments in the industry.

Risk Analysis

Large-scale outsourcing of research functions is predicted to transform the market over the next few years. Small- and medium-sized players are waiting to take advantage but, as Euan McKenzie of Central Insurance advises, there are both opportunities and risks to consider.
