The Ontologies Mapping project has been set up to create better tools and establish best practices for ontology management in life sciences R&D. The project will see the Pistoia Alliance develop a set of standardized guidelines, tools and services to enable the universal application of ontologies.
This phase of expansion breaks new ground for the Pistoia Alliance as the membership base now includes diagnostic laboratories for the first time.
The Pistoia Alliance, a global, not-for-profit alliance of life science organizations that work together to lower barriers to innovation in R&D, has announced the line-up for its 2015 Spring Conference.
The March 2015 edition of the Pistoia Alliance newsletter, Innovation in Action, is available to download as a PDF document.
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.
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.
