Manchester BRC networking and webinar series: Trial and Study Contracting – Thursday 13th June

View Event Details

The BRC’s RTI signposts researchers to appropriate support when setting up and running trials and studies in GM. We run monthly networking events and webinars to discuss solutions to common problems in a supportive peer network and to highlight support available in Greater Manchester to support clinical trials and studies.


The BRC’s Rapid Translational Incubator (RTI) held a workshop in December 2018 to look at challenges faced when setting up trials and studies and where to go for support in Greater Manchester. As follow up, the RTI is holding networking sessions and webinars to cover topics including contracting, sponsorship and ethics. These networking sessions complement the training and specific information provided by other organisations and do not replace their advice and guidelines.

Session Theme: Contracting advice for trials and studies in Greater Manchester

This is the new date and time for the 16th May session which was cancelled.
