May 2-3, 2018
  • Philadelphia, PA

In its 10th year, CBI’s Clinical Trial Budgeting & Forecasting brings together CROs, sites, sponsors and vendors to collaborate on best practices for ensuring accurate and effective budgeting and forecasting in clinical trials. With growing complexities and shrinking tolerance for variance between forecasted and actual budget, it’s critical that internal and external teams work together to tackle the challenges and establish efficient processes. Join your trial counterparts in May to bridge the gap between finance and operations and address each player’s role in managing deviations including timeline delays, changes in study design, outsourcing and more.

Featured Topics Include:

  • Optimize resource allocation, outsourcing strategy and scheduling
    for a clinical trials portfolio under limited manpower and budget
  • Explore cost-saving measures in clinical trial
    financial management case study
  • Benchmark and extract comparable data across clinical trials
  • Craft the building blocks to a better budget
  • Ensure efficient budget development for investigator grants
  • Budget and forecast for first in human studies
  • Apply best practices for forecasting drug supply
