The Unbiased Biomarkers in the Prediction of Respiratory Disease (U-BIOPRED) is a large multi-stakeholder collaborative partnership that was initially funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI). It has been regarded as a highly successful collaboration. U-BIOPRED is the project in which we developed our convergent approach to innovation in collaborative partnerships.
One of the most important characteristics of U-BIOPRED is the collaborative ethos that started with a strong vision that helped to make it clear that as a project it would deliver on many of the benefits of collaboration.
