Deep Dive: Insurance for Clinical Trials

Share this event

The journey from a startup to a multinational company 



Life Sciences businesses operate in an ever-evolving, complex and highly regulated industry where the cause of a future claim could be occurring right now, but the company may not be aware of this for months or even years. As your company expands, your insurance policies should adapt with flexible coverage tailored to your needs and the risks your company may face. In this Deep Dive session, we will cover each phase of the companies and invite a startup and a CRO so that we can complete the cycle of the insurance journey.

Join BioAlps, Chubb Insurance and Kessler for a Deep Dive at Biopôle Lausanne on Thursday 30 March 2023, from 4.30 pm to 7 pm.
