Allotrope Foundation was launched because no one could afford to do this alone, so we’re sharing the investment to build the Framework. In the course of deploying solutions in-house that leverage the Framework Allotrope Members additionally contribute back to the Foundation the taxonomy and ontology extensions the develop.. We are also recognizing common needs for enabling technologies and adaptations to existing tools. Member companies are contributing back to Allotrope and collaborating on development to effectively share the investment in these gap-filling technologies that assist our adoption strategies.

Ensure Sustainability and Adoption
If as a collection of industries we want to realize the potential value of the Framework and standards, we need to ENSURE the community and financial support is SUSTAINABLE, and that’s a matter of corporate responsibility: data integrity correlates with safer drugs and products; data efficiency provides a means to deliver products more quickly and at a lower cost to patients or customers. Strong representation of our industries among the Membership also makes vendor adoption more attractive- which will help drive this as an industry standard.
