International Conferences

The DSRU runs a number of International Pharmacovigilance conferences on pertinent topics in the field, adapting this portfolio to meet demand.


Signal Detection Conference (Biennial)

Since its inception in 2001, the DSRU Biennial Conference on Signal Detection has established itself as one of the largest and most important meetings in the pharmacovigilance calendar. The conference delivers the best available knowledge and new developments, featuring internationally renowned experts in signal detection and pharmacovigilance and has built up a loyal following.

The report on our 2017 Signal Detection conference is available here:

 Big Data in Pharmacovigilance

In 2018 we held the first conference on “Big Data for Pharmacovigilance”. Following the success of this event, and as the scale of available health data is increasing rapidly, we will be holding the conference again in 2019.

Monitoring the Effectiveness of Risk Minimisation (Biennial)

“The right medicine, at the right dose, at the right time, to the right patient” (GVP, Module XVI)

Following the effective implementation of GVP Module XVI in April 2014 we ran the first European conference on Risk Minimisation in November that year. Bringing together industry and regulatory professionals to share best practice this conference offers an insight into risk minimisation requirements, implementation and developments.
