Mission

Our projects transform R&D innovation through pre-competitive collaboration.

Vision

By collaborating as equals we can overcome significant challenges too complex to tackle in isolation.

Accomplishments

Our HELM project has won awards, and we were instrumental in setting up the tranSMART Foundation.

Challenges

To deliver our vision we build upon a platform of transparency, openness, technical expertise and collaboration.

Lowering Barriers to R&D Innovation

We are a global, not-for-profit alliance of life science companies, vendors, publishers, and academic groups that work together to lower barriers to innovation in R&D.

Our projects transform R&D innovation through pre-competitive collaboration. We bring together the key constituents to identify the root causes that lead to R&D inefficiencies. We develop best practices and technology pilots to overcome common obstacles.

Our members collaborate as equals on open projects that generate significant value for the worldwide life sciences community.

Interactive Ideas

With the launch of our Interactive Project Portfolio Platform (IP3) we are embracing a new level of openness, access, and transparency around our idea-to-project process. The platform is open to the public to submit new ideas, comment and vote on proposed ideas, and monitor the progress of our projects.

Sergio Rotstein, Director of Research Business Technology, Pfizer

"Through the formation of significant collaborative relationships across its member organizations, the Pistoia Alliance enables us to work jointly towards the resolution of common problems in an unprecedented fashion, resulting in a level of efficiency and interoperability that is vital to our increasingly collaborative industry.”

Michael Braxenthaler, President, Pistoia Alliance

"Pistoia-led projects have the potential to transform precompetitive R&D, making it more open and collaborative and providing a platform upon which organizations can innovate in the ways most suited to their ultimate goals."

Alex Drijver, CEO, ChemAxon

"Membership in The Pistoia Alliance has created valuable opportunities for participating in the debate on and the implementation of future trends and new standards in our branch of the industry, along with its leaders. It has enabled closer alignment of our product development strategy to these changes and to our customer needs. Through our direct involvement in and collaboration on Pistoia projects we have been able to develop and adopt new industry standards."

Four business cases developed for new project ideas

Over the last three months we have been developing business cases that explore four ideas from IP3. The aim was to investigate the potential market for the output of the projects should they go ahead, the resources required to deliver them, and to flesh out the specific outputs that the project would aim to deliver.
