The Pistoia Alliance has a global mission to “lower barriers to innovation in life science R&D & healthcare.” To support this, the Pistoia Alliance is running the third of its global knowledge-sharing webinars to provide some specific examples of where the pre-competitive collaboration, shared-risk, shared-reward model can bring benefit.


The session will begin with a Keynote Address on the evaluation of innovation and sustainability of the healthcare budget and will lead into a panel discussion with Japan life science leaders addressing what activities the Japan Chapter of the Pistoia Alliance should undertake.


A principal outcome of this event will be a better understanding of some of the hot topics facing the Japanese Life Sciences community and how the Pistoia Alliance community can come together to help address them.
