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 benchmark their skills against their peers in a friendly learning environment, and have them judged by an independent steering group of high-level industry leaders.
The 2020 competition was a completely virtual affair, with our finalists competing via video link from all corners of the globe. Despite the slight change in direction, the 2020 competition was a great success and our finalists gave extremely positive feedback about how the finals days operated, as well as the live awards event. The finals day procedures for 2021 are TBC.
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, while winners will take home a pharma trophy - a coveted accolade proving that you are amongst the very best within the industry.
Launched in 1999 as the only competition of its kind for Clinical Researchers, it continues to be an opportunity to recognise clinical excellence in our industry today.
