The Future for Clinical Research and Development in Germany
What’s Next ? Reduce dependencies, take more risks!
Prof. Bernd Raffelhüschen is a famous German economist who has been drawing attention to the demographic changes in Germany for years. In his lectures he often suggests and calls for a more independent position from the demographic problems in Germany.
In the scope of many conferences and network cooperations, REAgency+ is a representative for the promotion of young academics and a contact person for business advice and development in clinical research. In the interaction with young research academics, innovators and industry, there is a great demand for business and personal development opportunities, added value in collaboration and an effective value chain.
Bernd Raffelhüschen, for example, once recommended in one of his lectures to focus on future-relevant areas and to push the development of new industries and technologies. Economic growth should be supported and the quality of life in Germany improved.
Providing research funding, especially for areas relevant to the future, can help researchers develop their skills and expertise. Above all, and REAgency+ is committed to and supports this approach, it is particularly important to promote a culture of innovation. Raffelhüschen suggests to be encouraged to take risks and explore new ideas.
International collaboration also creates opportunities for researchers to work with international partners. Business entrepreneurship needs to be boosted and researchers need to be supported more. Start-ups and small businesses could be supported more by a supportive legal environment.

Breaking Down the Expectation-Reality Gap in Outsourcing Solutions
Following numerous meetings held last week, the central theme of discussion was centered around CRO outsourcing solutions in the clinical research industry. Over the past few years, there has been a rising expectation which has often been met with certain limitations. If you have personally experienced any challenges while working with service providers, we welcome you to share your experiences with us.
Outsourcing services to CROs is very popular in clinical research. Increasingly, companies want to focus on their core competencies and/or separate from peripheral areas. In addition, outsourcing can reduce costs and increase efficiency. In this context, the success of outsourcing solutions depends on the right strategy. Currently, there is an increasing requirement for the know-how of consultants and experts to launch efficient outsourcing solutions. Benefit from a strong, efficient team! REAgency+ promotes added value for employees and growing company structures for success. The introduction of functional areas should not only demonstrate business growth, but also a strategic vision and action plan. REAgency+ has the vision to create added value in the collaboration with growing, researching corporate structures. Our focus is on sustainable collaboration and access to effective expert solutions for growing, research-based companies. Flexible, with the ability to define, adapt and integrate new work processes. From experience REAgency+ knows that to achieve impact, expertise for clinical operational projects must be defined and implemented in a targeted manner to develop and gain market access for high quality pharmaceutical products. Fundamentally, the clinical team needs to understand product-specific, technical and business objectives of growing corporate structures. This understanding of needs and objectives helps to translate knowledge into product impact and development. The availability and flexibility to engage in clinical operational processes and growing enterprise structures is critical in this regard, especially in start-up companies where working groups are yet to find each other and work processes are yet to be defined. REAgency+ knows that when working with outsourcing providers, there are often hurdles to overcome to ensure sponsor oversight and budget planning. REAgency+’s expert solution has the corporate objective of enabling product and company identification in cooperation with and by experts.
