Scrip Awards 2018
The 14th Annual Scrip Awards
28 November 2018
Entries are now closed for the 14th Annual Scrip Awards.
Since they began, the Scrip Awards has sought to applaud the essential role that the pharmaceutical, biotech and other allied industries play in improving healthcare. Its trophies span the entire range of industry activities, from new drug launches and clinical trials, to innovative deals, outsourcing and fundraising.
This year, we have introduced a new category – Best Use of Real-World Evidence – to reflect the growing importance of real-world evidence to the sector in understanding the value of drugs in the market and not just the highly controlled environment of the clinical trial.
Over the past 13 years, The Scrip Awards has carved out a unique place in the industry calendar, with around 500 attendees coming from around the world to the prestigious ceremony, which this year will take place in the London Hilton on Park Lane in Mayfair on 28 November.
Our panel of 17 highly respected and independent experts from across the sector is waiting to judge the entries from the 16 categories in contention this year. You will find further details about our panel and how the judging process works on the Judges page.
