Precompetitive collaborations on new enabling technologies is becoming increasingly common in pharma, allowing scientists from competing companies to share knowledge, labor and funding to carry out research aimed at developing generally enabling laboratory tools and technologies.

We recently launched the Enabling Technologies Consortium ( facilitate such collaborations between the more than a dozen member pharma member companies and a variety of external industrial or academic partners.

As chair of the Analytical and Purification Instrumentation working group of the ETC, I am looking to:
- get the word out about the existence of ETC
- collect suggestions and feedback on potential projects and collaborations.

We look forward to your input and participation!
