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.
While the Pistoia Alliance has been successful in the past, with a strong and growing membership, alongside a series of successful projects, which have improved the efficiency of global life sciences R&D, the Pistoia Alliance faces a number of challenges which must be met in order to ensure its continued relevance.
The May 2016 edition of the Pistoia Alliance newsletter, Innovation in Action, is available to download as a PDF document.
