Contract research organisation for clinical trials in northern Europe
We work together as an enthusiastic and service-orientated team to deliver outstanding work. Our flexibility and professionalism have earned us recognition among our clients and is reflected in substantial repeat business.
A recent survey of customer perception among our large customers showed that ‘high quality’ and ‘flexibility’ are the primary reasons for choosing NORMA as their monitoring company. In additon, ‘project team devoted to study’ and ‘geographic reach / presence’ are important factors.
The working climate at NORMAS’s offices is positive and friendly and we strive to keep a low staff turnover.
