Academic-Industry Partnerships Roundtable Webinar hosted by Stem Cell Network and adMare BioInnovations

Academic-Industry Partnerships Roundtable Webinar hosted by Stem Cell Network and adMare BioInnovations

Partnerships between academic labs and industry can benefit both partners by increasing access to personnel, equipment, and new funding streams. They also enable academic researchers to apply their skills to industrial challenges, stimulating new R&D activities in industry including new company creation with an eye towards commercialization. 

Establishing successful academic-industry partnerships requires setting expectations that meet the needs of both the academic and industry partners. What are some of the strategies to find the right partnership fit, and more importantly, what are some best practices for aligning goals, structuring contracts, and enabling successful projects?
