Turning Sponsor/CRO Relationships into Partnerships for Success

Handshake in DiamondsSponsor/CRO relationships are critical to clinical development success but building a true partnership model requires more hard work and effort than the typical sponsor/vendor relationship, with different and important rewards for both parties. It’s a different mindset, where two teams merge into one, working collaboratively together to achieve a common goal.  

Learn how Ascendis Pharma has built and maintained a successful cooperative partnership model with CRO Veristat that really works. 

Learn how Ascendis and Veristat:

  • Evolved their relationship into a partnership and have held each other accountable to achieve Ascendis’ goals
  • Measure the success of the partnership with key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Continually evaluate and adjust the partnership model to fit the growing needs of both organizations
