What We Do
Our work is to evaluate new technologies, understand how they may optimize, secure, and accelerate the development and distribution of food and medicine while protecting the end-user (patients and consumers). Cutting edge technologies include but not limited to: AI, Machine Learning, Blockchain/DLT, VR/AR, Smart Materials, and more. Areas of application: pharmaceutical, biotechnology, nutraceuticals, agriculture/food, and more.
How We Do It?
We assemble a global collaborative community of technologists, industry professionals, regulatory agents, advocacy groups, and other critical stakeholders who are passionate and committed to combatting counterfeits, waste, and inefficiency while enhancing patient and consumer care and safety. This global collaborative work on technical standards working groups to develop solutions that alleviate the barriers to the adoption of these new technologies.
How to Participate
There different ways to collaborate and participate in driving the adoption of these technologies
- Collaborate and participate in existing working groups and pre-standards workstreams
- Bring new ideas and instantiate an activity
- Underwrite the overall program to financially support the incubation of ideas and programs for driving adoption
