    Date: 12.00 midday-13.00 UK time, Wednesday 26 June 2024

    Using AI to enhance medical communications outputs is obviously a hot topic being debated right now, marking a paradigm shift in the way agencies deliver medical affairs and publications outputs to stay competitive. In this webinar, the Nested Knowledge team will demonstrate how agencies and pharma can use their multi-AI-driven, living literature platform to produce high-quality outputs such as systematic literature reviews, scientific communications platforms, and publication updates in a cost-effective and timely manner. Existing users of the Nested Knowledge platform will also outline real-life examples of how the platform has benefitted them. And we answer questions from the audience.

    Compliance, Regulatory Challenges and Event Innovation

    Venue: Mereside Atrium, Alderley Park, Congleton Road, Nether Alderley, Macclesfield, SK10 4TG
    Date: 15.00-18.30 UK time, Wednesday 10 July 2024

    Increasingly innovative ways to communicate and distribute information around live events, including pre- and post-event materials, can trigger additional challenges from pharmaceutical regulatory frameworks. How can agencies involved in events best assess and meet these challenges in differing areas of responsibility, such as Logistics, Materials and Digital production, Scientific content, On-line accessibility restrictions?

    Any live event has at its core fixed dates when things need to happen. Yet time scales for approval processes vary greatly. A comprehensive knowledge of compliance requirements and anticipation of their time scales for sign off are vital if delivery is to be stress free and successful. And where any innovative communication concepts are proposed informed anticipation of any regulatory issues is necessary.

    Join us for lively discussion and networking opportunities with specialists from across #MedComms. Everyone's welcome.



    Bear with us while we recover from the non-stop weekly routine of #MedComms webinars. We'll take a break here for the Summer and return in September. To catch up on the recordings, please visit

    We'll next celebrate a day in the life of MedComms on 12 June 2024. We start with the sun rising over Auckland, New Zealand and finish with it setting over San Francisco, USA
