Pistoia Alliance is a global, not-for-profit members’ organization working to lower barriers to innovation in life science and healthcare R&D.
The Pistoia Alliance brings together more than 100 member companies from life science companies, technology and service providers, publishers, and academic groups to transform R&D through pre-competitive collaboration.
Together, we overcome common R&D obstacles by identifying root causes, developing standards and best practices, sharing pre-competitive data and knowledge, and executing technology pilots. From AI to chemical safety to data standards, members collaborate on projects of significant value for the worldwide life sciences R&D community, using The Pistoia Alliance’s framework for open innovation.
The SiLA Consortium is non-profit. It gathers life science experts and mobilizes the industry while developing free & open system communication and data standards to connect scientists with the data that matters.
SiLA and its members provide a framework for the exchange, integration, sharing, and retrieval of electronic laboratory information. These standards define how information is transported from one system to another. Setting the language, structure and data types required for seamless integration, SiLA supports the management, delivery, and evaluation of laboratory services. SiLA is recognized as most commonly used in the world.
The Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) is an international professional society of academic, industry and government life sciences researchers coupled with the developers and providers of laboratory automation technology. SLAS Lab of the Future initiatives focus on the integration of new technologies into the laboratory, particularly those that increase automation of workflows as well as connectivity within and between labs. The SLAS Lab of the Future also emphasizes the integration of the human element in the Lab of the Future, interrogating not only what the role of the human operator in the Lab of the Future will be, but also how we ensure that the Lab of the Future makes things easier for the human operator and does not simply increase pressure on productivity and contribute to burnout.
The Lab Automation Network is an alliance of technologically leading lab automation companies, who have brought together their expertise in laboratory technologies as well as in robotics and digitization. This enables us to deliver technologically advanced laboratory automation solutions spanning the entire value chains for R&D and QC in pharmaceutical, biotech, and chemical industry. Take advantage of direct access to the technology leaders and benefit from our many years of experience in numerous small, medium, and large-scale projects.
HollandBio is the Dutch biotech industry association connecting, supporting, and representing over 275 medical, agro-food, and industrial biotech companies. Our members are active in all phases of research and development and include all company sizes: start-ups, SMEs, listed companies and multinationals. Together, we strive for a society taking full advantage of the power of biotechnology in health, food and sustainability.
My Green Lab is a non-profit environmental organization with a mission to build a global culture of sustainability in science. The organization is the world leader in developing internationally recognized sustainability standards for laboratories and laboratory products, bringing sustainability to the community responsible for the world’s life-changing medical and technical innovations. Laboratories are one of the most resource-intensive spaces in any industry, but they don’t have to be. By introducing both a new perspective and proven best practices within a carefully crafted framework, My Green Lab has inspired tens of thousands of scientists to make a positive change in their labs by reducing the environmental impact of their work.
