The 2020 competition has welcomed a strong start to entry numbers since launching in September.

This prestigious competition is once again showing no signs of stopping as current entry numbers are higher than they were this time last year. The 2019 competition was our most successful yet with over 700 competitors taking part from over 40 different countries worldwide; and this momentum has continued for 2020.

Comprised of 3 stages, this competition aims to challenge, recognise, and reward the talent and passion of industry and academic researchers. Stage 1 of the competition consists of a multiple choice questionnaire with 20 questions where a score of 80% must be achieved in order to progress. Stage 2 asks entrants to complete a category specific clinical challenge which is submitted in essay form. Then finally the top performers from stage 2 will be invited to take part in the 3rd and final stage – the live head-to-head finals day.

The finals day has been designed to offer all of the finalists a highly beneficial and rewarding experience as they reflect upon and develop key skills. The feedback received each year has allowed PharmaTimes and the executive steering group to implement new dynamics into an already positive formula. This ensures that the finals day experience is thought-provoking and interesting for new entrants, but also fresh for returning candidates.

The competition culminates at a high-profile gala dinner & awards ceremony where the winners of each category will be honoured in front of the worldwide clinical research community. The 2020 awards ceremony is due to be held at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel on the 14th May 2020.
