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.
I was able to take SESL on a public spin at the Bio-ITWorld meeting last week in Hannover, and it was very well received. As we at the Pistoia Alliance bring this project to a close, it’s clear that we’re in a SESL-is-dead, long-live-SESL situation as we determine the best way to leverage the lessons from this project in other initiatives—very likely the Open PHACTS project sponsored by the IMI.
I first used the phrase “information ecosystem” to describe the biopharma informatics environment at the Pistoia Alliance Annual Face-to-Face board meeting last February. It’s a simple concept that’s widely understood now.
