A Risk-Reducing Approach to Complex Client Engagements

We've all been there – a difficult project with changing client needs. Triple Ring Technologies, a technology and product creation firm for clients in regulated industries, will describe how complex projects are structured for leading-edge research and development engagements. Using risk reduction techniques tailored to projects involving innovative technologies covering a variety of regulated industries, this event presents an excellent learning and networking activity for consultants and those involved in the medical devices and instrumentation sector and associated high technology areas. Please join us for an interactive discussion and a tour of what's brewing at Triple Ring's labs.

Please note that this event differs from our regular PATCA monthly meeting in that it's being held at the Newark campus of our host Triple Ring Technologies, and attendance is free. Light food and beverages provided. Please join us for an insightful presentation and excellent networking opportunity.
