About the event

Managing pharmacovigilance (PV) across the globe is an increasingly difficult task. The role of the QPPV and associated oversight responsibilities are today multi-faceted, demanding global-local understanding and fast flow of information across HQ, affiliates and CROs/partners. The drive for building localized legislative frameworks for PV also represent a significant workload on regulatory intelligence and legal staff of pharma companies. How are these challenges best managed? How should the division of responsibilities across global-local entities look like optimally? And where could automation be most useful?

Learn more about impact of regulations, processes and technologies to support your business. Meet colleagues from industry, understand challenges and get ideas for actions to take.

This event is held by Insife, Oracle Health Sciences and DLA Piper and is free to attend.

The intended target audiences are PV leaders, QPPV's, QPPV-office / Regulatory Intelligence staff, PV technology staff, Legal representatives, local operating PV represenatives and CROs.
