14.11.2019 14:00Enter China? Clinical Trial Strategy in China

As you may have experienced the differences in business culture between Switzerland and China, we are continually making efforts to bridge the gap. Based on the many feedbacks we received, we decided to launch a series of workshops to offer you a quick dive into China, to  help you to figure out whether to enter China; if yes, how.

The first event begins with pharmaceutical field and focuses on “Clinical Trial Strategy in China”. We are honored to have two speakers from a leading CRO in China, Tigermed Consulting Co., Ltd (Headquarters in Hangzhou, with a branch in Switzerland, Tigermed AG). During this workshop, the two experts will share the experience in organizing clinical trials and market authorization with a drug product or a Medical Device focusing specifically on the Chinese market. You  will learn about the best practices, relevant changes in Chinese legislation, and how to set yourself up for successful clinical trials and the preparation of pharmaceutical and medical device dossiers for submission.

Therefore if you are interested in the Chinese market, if you are wondering how difficult it would be, please don’t hesitate to reserve the time in your calendar! We are looking forward to meet you in Lausanne! By then, we will also introduce you more benefits offered by SSIC.
