International Clinical Researcher of the Year 2020

Raising standards in clinical research for over 20 years.

Designed to challenge, recognise and reward the talent and passion of industry and academic researchers, the PharmaTimes International Clinical Researcher of the Year is a rigorous, real world competition that attracts entrants from all over the globe.

Comprising three-stages, the competition offers a unique opportunity for professionals working within the research fraternity to see how their skills stack up against their peers in a friendly learning environment, whilst being judged by an executive steering panel made up of industry experts.

The categories in this flagship competition have been designed to ensure that they offer an accurate and fair challenge, whilst simultaneously providing an entry point for all types of clinical researcher and of all experience levels.

Competing is a fantastic way to gain professional recognition from senior clinical operations leaders and key stakeholders, leading to career progression and development. All finalists receive qualitative and quantitative feedback from the judges together with a signed Certificate of Achievement - a coveted accolade proving that you are amongst the very best within the industry.

Last year's 20th anniversary competition was a huge success and broke a number of records; we saw an incredible increase in entries and passes of more than 50% from 2018, and a 37% increase in essays submitted. With as many as 800 competitors taking part from across the globe. Visit our entry page to see how you can get involved this year.
