Call For Papers 2021

Whilst we are all getting used to a ‘new normal’ and adapting to it, EphMRA is already getting very excited about our conference next year in Antwerp! We are looking forward to seeing you all in person again and sharing some outstanding papers. 

We had some outstanding papers submitted by speakers for our conference and are now looking for some more inspiring papers to complete our sensational programme next June (15-17).

As always, we welcome submissions which show innovation and insights, that will engage, inspire and challenge our delegates – whether face to face or online.

2020 has been a challenging year for everyone but the industry has pivoted almost overnight to adapt to the ‘new world’ and whilst there continue to be challenges ahead, the industry has risen to the challenge and has shown great resourcefulness and agility.

We are looking for new submissions on the following important topics.  Case studies, including innovative research approaches especially with industry colleagues presenting are encouraged:

1.  Digital interactions resulting from COVID-19, for example: How can we, as an industry, engage effectively with doctors, patients and payers?

2. Best practices in our ‘new’ world, for example: What new techniques should we embrace now that face-to-face approaches are more difficult?

3. Rare Diseases: How have you overcome the challenges presented by researching rare diseases and cancer types?

You can find the submission form here and the submission deadline is Monday 18th January.  You can find some guidance notes for what makes a successful submission here. The Programme Steering Committee will review the submissions by the end of January and if successful, you will be asked to give a 5 minute 'pitch' in February - dates to be confirmed.

Please do get in touch if you have any questions in the meantime and contact Caroline Snowdon, Events Manager [email protected] but we very much look forward to receiving your inspirational submissions by January 18th 2021.
