Everything we do is about bringing people together to solve complex problems. Collaborative Cures connects scientists and technologists with business know how, regulatory expertise and capital to cure paralysis in our lifetime.
Embodying collaborative leadership involves leaders being visibly and tangibly open to collaboration. Leading by example promotes a culture of collaboration and shared endeavour as the way to achieve results.
Incentivising collaborative behaviour requires recognising and rewarding collaboration. Incentives beyond funding are required to drive collaborative behaviours including rewards for sharing scientific data and open communication between different parts of the system.
Mission orientated framing has concrete, measurable and achievable outcomes. Establishing a shared mission that multiple parties can sign up to is essential for creating the conditions for collaboration.
Active governance is central to building credibility and trust with key stakeholders in the system by incorporating proactive and appropriate levels of oversight to ensure projects achieve mission-level impact. Critically, funding, partnerships, and actual scientific progress can be wasted if the right governance structures aren’t in place.
