The European Forum for Good Clinical Practice (EFGCP) is holding its annual conference on "Meeting the Ethical Standards under the Clinical Trials Regulation (CTR)" from 21 to 22 February 2017 in Brussels, Belgium. 

As one of the most important, longstanding, European fora for debate around clinical research, bringing all interested parties together patients, the EFGCP has taken an active role in the approaching the new CTR. It is proposed that the 2017 AC will discuss procedural arrangements already underway and address the ethical challenges that the CTR present, providing opportunity for debate, access to expertise and examples of how these challenges can be met.
