Close to 100 OpenClinica users recently came together face to face in Brussels for the OpenClinica European Summit, the first event of its kind for the OpenClinica community. The half-day event was packed with 15 rapid-fire presentations along three key themes: case studies using OpenClinica, regulatory considerations, and integration & standards.
The quality of the presentations was excellent. I learned a tremendous amount about how OpenClinica is being used in a variety of research settings. It was inspiring to see so many enthusiastic users, and I think we all benefited from the opportunity to talk and network face to face. Plus, Brussels is a great place to visit in the spring!
You may have seen the recent announcement of the OpenClinca European Summit. Akaza is planning this event to reach out to our European user base and provide an opportunity for face to face dialogue, networking, and learning. We’ve got a great lineup of speakers and panelists that we will be announcing soon.
From the announcement:
The first OpenClinca European Summit brings together users, developers, and other interested parties in a structured setting to share information about OpenClinica. Whether you’re already using OpenClinica or considering it for future use, this event is an excellent way to obtain lots of high quality information quickly and interact with real users in the OpenClinica community.
The Summit will take place April 14 in Brussels, followed by optional OpenClinica Intensive End User and Advanced eCRF Development training courses that will run April 15 – 18. Registration is open to all and the early bird deadline is January 30th. For more information see https://www.openclinica.org/European_Summit.html.
Hope to see you there!
