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.
The presentation and recording from the "Smart Glasses, Smart Scientists" Pistoia Alliance Debates webinar held on Thursday 25th February 2016 are available here.
Collaborating with Pistoia through the President's Startup Challenge gave us a chance to think through in a very structured way about the next step of development of our platform, resulting in addition of the tissue collection module to CDNR; and to get feedback from Pistoia members, both the judging panel and more importantly, through assigning an excellent industry mentor.
