Problem

Many of the world’s greatest scientists and technologists have discovered breakthroughs that have the potential to impact paralysed people’s lives today. Yet, these interventions are held hostage in the minds and labs of these spectacular researchers due to systemic failures in translating research from the lab to the clinic.

 

Impact

No individual scientist, technologist, entrepreneur, investor or philanthropist is going to cure paralysis on their own. But by working together, they will.

So, through Collaborative Cures, we’re focused on bringing people together to create systemic impact that will:

 

  • Reduce 50-year scientific translation timelines to 10 years by creating the conditions for collaboration, facilitating healthy rivalries and building trust.
  • Catalyse collaborations worth €1 billion by connecting scientists and technologists with business know how, regulatory expertise and capital.

     

How Collaborative Cures Creates the Conditions for Collaboration

leadership - 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.

Embodying Collaborative Leadership

Creating a culture of collaboration needs people to lead by example. It demands leaders being visibly and tangibly open to collaboration.   

Collaboration - 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.

Systems-led approach - 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.

governance - 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.

Active Governance

Establishing proactive and appropriate levels of oversight is fundamental to allow collaborative projects to deliver. It requires robust structures to help build credibility and trust.
