We are a not-for-profit organization with over 200 member companies across the life science ecosystem collaborating across more than 25 projects and communities to advance science. Our members include 17 of the top 20 global pharma companies by revenue, patient-led research groups, technology and solution providers, academic institutions, publishers, and commercial research groups.
Our mission is to lower the barriers to innovation in Life Sciences. Our unique framework for collaboration enables organizations across the industry to work together to solve common issues thus eliminating barriers to innovation.
Ability to collaborate, risk-free, with experts from other companies in our communities and projects to solve industry-wide issues and deliver tangible results to your user communities. Build a network of peers and mentors across the industry and across the world. Enhance your skills and career progression with professional development through involvement in our educational programs, events and programs.
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.
This collaborative project was launched to create a bottom-up qualitative Natural Language Processing (NLP) Use Case Database, to allow NLP practitioners in pharma companies to share successes and failures with their peers. Narrowing down successful use case scenarios will lead to less experimentation and higher success rates for new NLP initiatives.
A well-defined ontology that bridges between regional and functional perspectives on common substance-related data objects and global and scientifically objective representations is required. The goal of our project is to build an IDMP Ontology that enables deep, semantic interoperability based on FAIR principles to enhance and augment the existing ISO IDMP standards.
The goal of this program is to develop leadership and mentoring skills in diverse leaders at life science companies, enabling them to support, initiate, and/or lead diversity efforts at their respective companies.
