Krakow, Poland (PRWEB) April 6, 2005
SCIREX Corporation announced today the expansion of its European operations with the opening of a data management office in Krakow, Poland.
SCIREX Senior Vice President of Biometrics, Sharon Medendorp, cited KrakowÂs highly educated labor pool and its central position in Europe as key factors in the decision to locate a SCIREX office in the city. ÂA Krakow location supports the continued expansion of SCIREX throughout Europe,Â Medendorp stated. ÂIt provides our European clients high quality SCIREX services with geographical and temporal proximity between research sites and data management resources, meaningful cost advantages, and simplicity regarding compliance with the EU Clinical Trial Directive. The city is a pharmaceutical industry hub in Eastern Europe and is growing in importance, assisted by the increasing number of clinical trials being conducted in the region. Krakow thus provides us with a base from which to better service clients in Western Europe, and positions us well for growth opportunities in Eastern Europe.Â
