EDGE International Conference 2018: ASPIRE

The ASPIRE  international conference is taking place on the 28th February and 1st March 2018 at one of the UK’s most central and accessible meeting points: the Vox Conference Centre in the bustling city of Birmingham.

Building on the tremendous success of our recent conference held in March 2017, we will again focus on opportunities to improve the efficiency and productivity of clinical research.

The conference will bring together members of the research community including research professionals from the NHS, Clinical Trial Networks and international organisations, allowing them to share knowledge and best practise with the aim to enhance clinical research across the UK, Canada and beyond. 

Delegates can enjoy a mix of user-led breakout sessions, engage in a selection of EDGE workshops from some of our top users, and hear from various inspirational keynote speakers from across the research community. 

 

WHY ATTEND?

  • Learn how other teams and organisations utilise EDGE for their own research practices (e.g., in managing primary care)
  • Discover how to take advantage of the specific EDGE functions (e.g., attributes, reporting) to forge strong relationships with key stakeholders more effectively (e.g., finance, pharmacy and more)
  • Map the activity by support departments to plan and allocate appropriate resource to avoid bottlenecks
  • See how good communication between departments and sites improves teamwork, efficiency and Trust income
  • Engage in user-led workshops that provide step-by-step instructions which explain how to utilise specific EDGE functionality (e.g. Finance) and utilise Power BI as a means to visualise data held in EDGE
  • Hear from leading experts in the research field and leave feeling truly inspired
  • Network and collaborate with other research and health organisations in your research area

The ASPIRE conference is being hosted at a bigger and better conference facility where delegates have further opportunities available to develop their skills and truly be inspired to aim higher and achieve more within their research role.

“The 2017 EDGE conference was really useful and I would definitely recommend it. The speakers were excellent and I have some ideas about how to collaborate with other sites and improve local functionality.”
