Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual

Feasibility and Study Activation

Modernising Feasibility, Site Selection, Site Engagement, and Start-Up Practices

29-30 October 2024


We are pleased to announce production of Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual Feasibility and Study Activation: Modernising Feasibility, Site Selection, Site Engagement, and Start-Up Practices being held 29-30 October 2024 at the InterContinental Barcelona-Fira Center in Barcelona, Spain.


Identifying the most appropriate sites and effectively partnering to streamline site activation, start-up, and operations is a daunting task. The convergence of the pandemic, regulation changes, patient- and site-centricity, DEI, real-world data, new analytics capabilities, digital and decentralised site and patient partnership models are challenging traditional feasibility methodologies. SCOPE’s Feasibility and Study Activation will explore new approaches to overcome these challenges. The gathering will be part of the Summit for Clinical Trials Operations Executives (SCOPE) Europe, a two-day event made up of shared plenary keynotes from biopharma thought leaders, four conferences focused on specific issues and functions within the clin ops, innovation and research enterprise, informal and interactive breakout discussion groups, and networking. Please see the overall program map below for 2024. Topics to be discussed at the Feasibility and Study Activation conference include:


  • Data-driven approaches to feasibility and site selection
  • Modernising site enablement and engagement
  • Leveraging AI in feasibility, site selection, and study start-up
  • Building and implementing a data-driven site selection approach
  • Incorporating DEI into feasibility assessment
  • Strategies to evaluate and reduce site burden and improve operations
  • Tools and strategies to improve site activation and study start-up in both decentralised/remote and site-centered trials


The deadline for priority consideration is 2 April 2024.


All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
