Open PHACTS – Open Pharmacological Space

From the homepage:

Open PHACTS is building an Open Pharmacological Space in a 3-year knowledge management project of the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), a unique partnership between the European Community and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA).

The project is due to end in March 2014, and aims to deliver a sustainable service to continue after the project funding ends. The project consortium consists of leading academics in semantics, pharmacology and informatics, driven by solid industry business requirements: 28 partners, including 9 pharmaceutical companies and 3 biotechs.

Important to different communities for different reasons. My interest isn’t the same as BigPharma. 😉

A project to watch as they navigate the thickets of vocabularies, ontologies and other semantically diverse information sources.
