The Knowledge Management in Pharma & Life Science Community of Practice
will hold their 'Integrating Knowledge in the Life Science Product Life
Cycle' Web conference starting October 18th at http://km.colayer.net/ This
launch event initiates a series of community-based virtual and face-to-face
meetings and workshops devoted to best practice in this key industry
subject running throughout 2005. (Preliminary program of 2005 dates and US
and European locations and participation options will be announced to
launch conference participants)
The program includes latest developments in data management and integration
using eR&D, LIMS, electronic notebooks, semantic Web technologies, genomics
and chem- and bio- informatics, combined with best knowledge management
Please register for membership at http://km.colayer.net/ to participate.
Details of the October program and speakers are available on the Web site.
This conference will explore current best knowledge management strategies,
practices and supporting solutions in the life sciences & pharma industry
that enable innovation, effectiveness and success in the competitive
market. We will address issues that include:
· How can existing knowledge and intellectual property be more
effectively deployed into new business situations?
· How should we manage our data and knowledge around the product life
cycle to maximise its value in the market place?
· What new knowledge management approaches offer greater productivity
for the individual worker? For the team? For collaborators and partners?
For communities of interest and practice?
· How should we classify our knowledge better semantically so that we
may retrieve more of what we know, is known or to determine what is not known?
· What new approaches for managing knowledge are being created by the
increasingly electronic nature of information capture, management and
collaboration? What are the legal and regulatory risks and how do we manage
· How do the new standards and initiatives allowing the improved
exchange and combination of data between different systems and domains
create opportunities for improved access to knowledge?
· How can improved knowledge management help to reduce the high cost
of clinical trials and patient recruitment? How do we increase the
effectiveness of knowledge-supported healthcare delivery?
The October conference comprises keynotes by Eric Neumann (CKO, Aventis),
Debra Amidon (CEO, Entovation), Douglas Weidner (CEO, KM Mentor) and
Etienne Wenger and over thirty-five speakers from a wide range of
innovative organisations who will share their strategies, practices and
supporting solutions for implementing the best product development and life
cycle management in the pharma, life science and healthcare industries.
