January 30, 2013

Funding Scheme: 2013-01-30


The annual meeting of European Forum for good clinical practice (EFGCP Annual Conference 2013 & 20th Anniversary) which was held from 29 to 30 January 2013 in Brussels.
highlights the importance of Digital Technology in the European Union and the ability of this latter to integrate various areas through research and innovation.


Digital technologies are now part of our lives, shaping and changing the likes of health care and research. Whilst there is already a vast amount of literature on the subject, it is clear that these technologies raise important ethical questions that must be addressed. For health care professionals their use must be based on evidence; for researchers they must use new methods fairly; for ethics committees the ‘fear of the new’ must not create grounds for unwarranted hostility or even unfavourable review.

The conference will a forum for all stakeholders interested in health care research. Together they will debate current topics and in particular the ethics of emerging technologies in clinical care, trials and research.
