At the FIGON Dutch Medicine Days 2023, held in September in the Dutch city of Oss, we presented the results of an innovative gap analysis that was carried out among tenants of the Pivot Park Business Park in the same city. The gap analysis helps to identify the gap between available skills and equipment at different stages of the 120 to 140-step drug discovery, development, and deployment process. The next iteration of this online tool (with a Graphileon engine inside) will be used, in the context of the PharmaNL initiative, to map the entire Dutch pharma landscape, providing an essential source of information during decision-making with regard to investments in Shared Development Infrastructure (e.g which equipment to buy and where to deploy it, so it can be optimally used by multiple organizations) and Human Capital Growth (in close collaboration with educational institutes that develop courses that can be part of life long learning). The detailed data that is collected is stored in a so-called “knowledge graph”, a densely connected data set linking users, organizations, locations, skills, competencies, courses, and equipment. This allows us to quickly adapt to evolving information needs, grant dynamic data-access permissions, and create great visualizations.
There are many possible use cases related to the data set that is being created: from developing the right training courses to cover gaps in skills and competencies that are needed, to an interactive search for highly specialized laboratory equipment in a certain geographical area. All of these use cases can be supported by extending the application graph.
