Ethics and GCP Forum

The ICR Ethics & GCP forum is the ICR's flagship event attracting a combined audience of over 500 delegates. The secret of its success is the dedication of the Team that plan the content of each forum. The Forum is held twice a year, once in Spring and the second in Autumn. This major Clinical Research Forum is one that should not be missed with regular speakers from The HRA, NIHR, and the MHRA . All the speakers give their time for free .
