The 42nd EMWA conference took place from May 10th to 14th 2016. Two of our employees had been part of it and came back with good impressions. Now, they’re writing their post-workshop assignments to obtain their certificate of successful participation.
The European Medical Writers Association (EMWA) is a European network, which represents and supports the interests of all medical writers around Europe. Furthermore, EMWA aims to provide advanced trainings for its members in the fields of medical writing and medical communications. These opportunity is given twice a year at the EMWA conferences.
This year’s conference provided a great forum for exchanging experiences across medical writers around Europe from beginners to experts. Not only in the workshops, but also in intervals and social events there has been the opportunity to talk to colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere.
For the first time, the Live Internship Forum took place. Prospective medical writers and representatives of various CROs had the possibility to meet, and to talk about potential internships. ICRC-Weyer had been also a part of it.
The workshops specifically focused on key topics and allowed an advanced training and detailed discussions of specific issues. Group works provided a great opportunity to adapt knowledge and to discuss the tasks with other participants. The successful attendance was proven by a post-workshop assignment and subsequent certification. This ensures a high level standard and a great competence of the participants, as well as of our employees.
The EMWA conference has been a complete success to us and we are looking forward to the fall conference taking place in Brussels.
