RWE: From sideshow to centre stage

The world’s largest commercial pharma conference

Real-World Evidence (RWE) is coming of age

From the way we discover treatments, to the nature of development and our understanding of what “value” really means - RWE is our purest reflection of value, and is rightly having seismic impact across the whole value chain.

With the need for more advanced market access systems, more effective commercial models and newly revitalised drug development, RWE is growing up. Whilst uncertainty around regulatory and access authority decision-making must be overcome, RWE can deliver new life to decision-making throughout the product lifecycle.

eyeforpharma Barcelona (March 31st - April 2nd) is the only event that brings together all key RWE stakeholders and decision-makers, plus thousands more health innovators together to spark new ideas and collaborations.

RWE & Big Data leaders include:

Carefully selected to cover every aspect of your RWE & Dig Data strategy.
