Therefore, on behalf of the Kozminski University and ours, we invite you to the next Webinar of the „WE! are Clinical Research” movement. 

Project management in the clinical trials

Are changes to the methods of managing clinical trials possible? This time we will approach research in a more systemic and process-based manner, and the topic of the meeting will be Project Management in the Clinical Trials. The slogan Agile management is heard more and more, but is this "agile management" possible in the clinical research environment? In such large and complex environments and projects, are we able to apply a methodology that is mainly associated with the IT sector? During the meeting, we will get to know two different perspectives presented by Katarina Pavlović (SRB) and Raj Kumar (UK).
