The categories for the 2020 competition have been further developed to offer an even greater experience for entrants.

Due to the immense popularity and positive feedback from last year’s competition, PharmaTimes have been able to directly adapt the categories to make them more accurate and enticing for newcomers, but also fresh for returning candidates.

The categories go through a revamping process by our executive steering group each year, taking on board the feedback recorded from previous finalists as well as implementing the expert knowledge of our judges. All of these aspects tied together leads to a more dynamic and fulfilling experience for our finalists on finals day.

One of the main talking points from the 2019 competition was the inclusion of a brand new category, Start Up, which had impressively high entry numbers and demonstrates how this prestigious competition continues to innovate year after year. Start Up is returning for 2020 with a brand new challenge, which we expect to be hotly contested once again.

Start Up is open to either a team or an individual and will be held alongside the Aspiring Clinical Research Associate, Clinical Research Associate, Clinical Trial Administrator, Project Manager, Team Leader and In-House CRA for the individual entry points. There is also scope for groups of clinical researchers to get involved once again in the Clinical Research Team and Clinical Site categories.

If you would like to try your hand at one of the challenges this year, then entries can be made by completing this multiple choice questionnaire – get ahead and make 2020 your year for success!
