2nd International Conference
WE! are Clinical Research 


We are pleased to invite you to attend the 2nd International Conference “WE! are the Clinical Research” organized by the Kozminski University in Warsaw.

In 2021, we met for the first time to listen to a vast array of excellent presentations and take part in interesting panel discussions. Our meeting revealed a wealth of benefits that could be gained by getting together and discussing cutting-edge solutions in clinical research. An international team of speakers delivered an exceptional participant experience. The video below is an excellent summary of the event:

1st International Conference We! are Clinical research  

This year, we are extending the Conference to two days and broadening the agenda to include the area of medical start-ups. We believe that bringing the world of clinical research and med-tech start-ups closer together is an absolute must. One of the building blocks of our future is making sure that the ideas developed today to improve the operation of the healthcare system and patient outcomes are well aligned with the world of clinical research through the development and implementation of projects aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of these methods.

Be sure to save the date for the upcoming Conference on 14-15 October 2022.

Organizational information

The Conference will take place on 14-15 October 2022 live at the Kozminski University in Warsaw (address). At the same time, the Conference will be livestreamed, with an opportunity to take part in discussions online. Online participants will join the conference via Zoom. KONTEKST will support the conference through simultaneous interpreting.


Aims of the Conference

The Organizers

"WE! are the clinical research" - each of us creates them, each of us participates in them, each of us is a part of them! It is not only our job, but also our mission to bring the drug to the market so that every patient has a chance to benefit from the best, most effective, and safest therapy.

At Kozminski University, we celebrate the development of studies related to health protection. We run a number of fields of study, including: health care management, pharmaceutical law, clinical trials, and big data. We observe growing needs and interests within clinical trials. We decided to create a Movement that will bring together the clinical trials community both in Poland and around the world. A place where each of us could feel even more connected not only with clinical trials, but with people who are their inseparable links. We create an international platform for sharing experiences and knowledge about the latest solutions, discoveries, and working methods in clinical trials. The message is directed to people working in the field of clinical trials and everyone interested in development. The topics we cover include areas related to the development of science and building its future. We invite outstanding specialists from around the world to cooperate with us, who during meetings share their professional achievements with us, provide the latest knowledge in the field, and inspire personal development. The goal of our movement is both the substantive and personal development of each of us, and a reminder of what our daily work is for.
