Overcome challenges in collaborating with CROs

Working with CROs in the biotech or pharma industry has its unique challenges, many of which fall under different aspects of the human and technical elements. The human element, people working together, includes activities like communication, aspects of collaboration, and documentation of the process. The technical element is the infrastructure supporting the project members, and includes making sure that the system is secure, robust, and efficient.

Technical element

From a technical standpoint, protecting intellectual property, while still providing enough information for swift collaboration can become a challenge. There is a need to eliminate project details for CROs while safeguarding ideas, hypotheses, and knowledge. Finding a balance between sharing essential information and hiding sensitive design hypotheses and SAR related work is essential. In the meantime, the system needs to be scalable, as project needs vary, and further FTEs might need to be involved or phased out at any stage. Synchronization of uploaded data is another technical issue, as versions and documentation siloes across teams and collaborators can become difficult to manage.
