EDGE Connected Conference banner CPD 2019

The EDGE International Conference – CONNECTED will take place on the 3rd and 4th April 2019. We will once again meet at one of the UK’s most central and accessible meeting points – The Vox Conference Centre – in the lively and bustling city of Birmingham.

Building on the remarkable success of the EDGE ASPIRE conference held at the beginning of 2018, the 2-day conference will focus on transferring new EDGE skills and practices to improve the efficiency of clinical research. With an extended emphasis on networking and collaboration, CONNECTED will entail greater opportunities to network and make lasting professional contacts. Delegates will gather valuable tips and insights from fellow users experiencing similar challenges and successes using EDGE.

Delegates will once again enjoy a mixture of user-led breakout sessions, engage in a selection of EDGE workshops from our top users, and hear from various inspirational keynote speakers from across the research community. The conference will bring together research professionals from the NHS, Clinical Research Networks, and other international organisations with the core aim to enhance clinical research across the UK, Canada, and beyond.

Name changes

We understand that organisations may change who they are sending to the conference or they may not quite know who that person will be at the time of booking. This is not a problem, we can update the delegate information free of charge, ideally by 1 week before the conference starts.  


If circumstances change and you can no longer attend then we would request you to find a colleague who can take your place at the conference so that your organisation is not missing out on the learning opportunities. However, if you do need to cancel then we can offer a full refund free of charge up until the 3rd January 2019. If you need to cancel a place after this date then you may only receive a partial refund.
