Education

In the rapidly changing world of regulatory affairs, access to high-quality, up-to-date training and the availability of formal qualifications are important ways to help RA professionals achieve excellence. The Education Award recognises an individual who has made a significant contribution to the world of regulatory education and training perhaps through the development of a formal educational qualification, the consistent delivery of a training product, or the production of an innovative in-house training programme. The category also includes companies or organisations that have demonstrated support for the development of RA professionals through, for example, tailored training programmes, or by encouraging staff to undertake professional qualifications, such as an MSc.

Entries are also encouraged from writers of seminal reference works or producers of online education tools, including individuals or teams working in an academic or non-profit environment.
