Bionetworks: reviewing the collaborations between pharma, biotech, academia and venture capitalists

As many pharmaceutical companies’ needs for growing their pipelines rise, this is fuelling the increase in partnerships with external groups – academia, biotech and funding organisations.

 
PRLog - May 28, 2014 - CENTRAL LONDON, U.K. -- Companies are realizing that their own internal R&D groups alone are not enough and as pharma groups slash their internal R&D projects, they have taken a shining to funding discovery and early R&D work with outside sources. This is therefore impacting on the expansion and number of collaborations with academics and other external groups.

Based on this information, the SMi Group is delighted to introduce its inaugural European Bionetworks Summit, taking place in London, UK, on the 7th and 8th of July 2014. The event programme includes timely case studies, presentations, roundtables and panel discussions on the hottest topics, delivered by leading industry experts as they demonstrate how to create winning strategic partnerships from modern day collaborations. This unique event will create the perfect platform for Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Academia and Venture Capitalists to discuss the importance of creating winning strategic partnerships.
