Day 1

Innovation Today: What’s happening today, in this moment, to make every team and every person the best they can be in Quality and Compliance.

Day 2

Innovation of the Future: How will clinical trials evolve? As we look to the future, collaboration will be more important than ever.


The 2020 Avoca Quality and Innovation Summit will offer hands-on, deep-dive workshops in the areas of:

  • ICH E6 (R2) and Risk Management: With ICH E6 (R2) mandating the implementation of a risk-based approach to all phases of trial execution, clinical development teams must find new approaches to risk management.
  • Inspection Readiness: Key parameters to being proactive and ready for inspection. Participants will share inspection experiences.
  • Lessons Learned: Breaking down silos and creating a pathway to sharing lessons learned across organizations by leveraging collaboration.
  • ICH E8 and Quality-by-Design: What your organization needs to do to ensure compliance with the new ICH E8 guideline as it relates to quality-by-design.


Preliminary session themes and topics will include:

  • Current state of the industry as it pertains to patient-centered approaches. How the ICH E8 requirement to utilize patient-centered drug development affects patients and its impact on the clinical trial execution process.
  • Empowering your own individual change. How changing our activities can deliver new results, by Jim Lawless, motivational speaker and author of Taming Tigers.
  • Innovation and technology disruptors. How emerging trends in technologies will impact clinical trials, such as patient safety, data integrity, and traditional operations models.
  • Quality and risk executive panel. How the increasing complexity in study design, amount of data, and patient demands affect quality and risk management.
