The Pistoia Alliance Life Science Informatics Forum was established in 2021 and was launched with a series of activities in the UK. In 2024, the alliance expanded the forum with a series of European-based activities.

The objectives of these Forums are to develop communities focused on sparking discussions on leading-edge topics within the broader European Life Science / Biopharma Informatics domains, and identifying pre-competitive common challenges, amenable to common solutions for the Pistoia Alliance to address.

📆 Evolution Timeline:

2021: Birth of the Life Science Informatics Forum in the UK

2022: Initiation of the first two meetings in London

2023: A year of growth with four insightful meetings.

⏰ Forum format:

15:00 Forum kick-off, typically on a mid-week day, with a greeting from that meeting’s sponsor.

This is followed by 3-4 “lightning” presentations, each lasting 15-20 minutes, by specialists well-versed in the chosen theme to provide the body of knowledge to inform the later discussions.

16:45 Refreshment break to allow for networking.

17:15 Facilitated interactive debates: engaging group discussions, enriched by the earlier sessions.

18:30 Post-meeting reception, courtesy of our meeting sponsor.

👥 Member Dynamics:

With a strong membership base of  industry professionals, we follow the “rule of 30” for our meetings. This ensures that while we have a comprehensive range of perspectives, the gathering remains of a size to allow for uninhibited dialogues.
