An AMRC masterclass on developing partnerships with industry.
About this event
Collaboration between medical research charities and the devices, biotech and pharmaceutical industries can deliver significant benefits for patients and wider society.
These collaborations are increasingly vital in a changing environment for developing new therapies with increasing costs, stratified medicines leading to more targeting of drugs, and the blurring of the divide between drugs and devices.
Charities are increasingly looking to be involved in later stages of the R&D pathway to speed up access for patients, but there is no standard model to develop partnerships with industry.
In this masterclass we will examine how charities can transparently develop partnerships with industry, while protecting their integrity and independence, and will launch AMRC’s revised guidance on developing these essential partnerships.
What we'll cover
- Why collaboration with industry can work for charities
- Examples of the different ways charities have developed partnerships
- The benefits and pitfalls of contracts and agreements
- How the changing environment is leading to new opportunities for your charity to collaborate
Who's it for?
Research directors and senior staff from member charities and related organisations, who are interested in developing partnerships with industry to further the research aims of their organisation.
