Life Science R&D Big Data Leaders Forum

03 Dec 2013 - 05 Dec 2013 - Ramada Plaza Basel, Switzerland

Bookmark and Share

This 3 day forum is the “must attend” event for those senior decision-makers looking to make the shift towards big data and for those looking to improve their implementation of data-driven approaches for their specific departments.

The first day will feature several keynote presentations from C-Level thought leaders on big data in the R&D space and heads of major research institutions who are at the front-end of the big data challenge. They will be discussing the strategic drivers for big data and key implementation guidance on how to make best use of this approach.

Day 2&3 of the Forum will feature 3 specific streams depending on the phase of R&D that is most crucial for you:

-              Discovery & Translational Big Data Forum;

-              Clinical Data Management Forum;

-              Real-World & Health Outcomes Big Data Forum.

Discovery & Translational Big Data Forum will be focusing on important issues related to use of big data to support various functions within the drug discovery process, including better designing NMEs, re-engineering and re-initiating previously failed drug programs and will enable participants to make the most informed decisions possible on how to enhance the management and application of their discovery and translational data. Clinical Data Management Forum will explore a number of areas vital to the development of clinical data management (CDM) and present key issues in selecting and implementing a CDM system. Real-World & Health Outcomes Big Data Forum will discover how to best design observational studies to get most of the real world data generated, what are the new and innovative approaches to capture, store and manage as well as what is the role of evidence and health outcomes data in decision-making.
