The MRC-NIHR Trials Methodology Research Partnership is delighted to welcome you to the 6th International Clinical Trials Methodology Conference 2021.

ICTMC is the leading international platform for researchers and practitioners to present the very latest in trials methodology research. The meeting also offers valuable networking and training opportunities, with over 750 delegates from 22 countries attending in 2019.

The 2021 conference will take place in the beautiful and vibrant spa town of Harrogate, located in the heart of Yorkshire and on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Nearby is the historic city of York, as well as a number of attractive market towns, which altogether make an extended visit to the region appealing.

The meeting venue is Harrogate Convention Centre, which is both spacious and modern. A variety of accommodation options are available within a short walking distance to suit any budget. We also hope many of you will join us for the Conference Dinner which promises to be an unforgettable event at the Edwardian Royal Hall Theatre.

A diverse programme will be prepared by the Scientific Committee and Education Committee, which promises to make this a highly rewarding and enjoyable meeting for all.

We look forward to welcoming you to ICTMC 2021!

Professor Paula Williamson, ICTMC 2021 Local Organising Committee Chair
