Hear these experienced licensing professionals share their knowledge of novel agreement and partnership models for multi-party alliances which are currently speeding biomedical products to global markets. The discussion will examine the implications for industry-university partnerships and business development relationships. These alliances help accelerate therapies to market and lower the risk threshold of developing products that address global health needs. Learn how licensing professionals can replicate and improve on the methods used to form these existing alliances in order to create high impact deals which accelerate promising therapies to the market. We will also address negotiating strategies for reaching agreements between diverse parties in industry-university partnerships. Cultural differences among countries and companies, universities and other partners will also be addressed. The audience will have the opportunity to question the panel and provide input from their own experiences. These discussions will help develop educational materials on the subject for licensing executives and university tech transfer offices.
