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.
It was tremendously gratifying to work with the 36 participants who attended last month’s Information Ecosystem Workshop in Hannover. The discussion was enthusiastic and focused, and efforts are currently underway to prioritize the many ideas (over 30) generated at the meeting into viable project workstreams.
Robert Mitchell over at Computerworld recently blogged about his takeaways from the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo. He nailed it, I think, raising themes that we’ve definitely noticed here at the Pistoia Alliance. We’re also thrilled he gave us a mention in his post.
