Biomedical research has become increasingly driven by creating and consuming tremendous volumes of complex data. At the same time the pharmaceutical industry is utilizing an extended network of partner organizations of various sorts (CRO’s, not-for-profit organizations, clinicians and academics) in order to discover and develop new drugs. Current areas of interest for delivering new technologies or molecules to the industry are Open Innovation, Collaborative Innovation and of course, Open Source. Due to the mounting costs, collaborative research and development is undoubtedly the future of biomedical research.
