NE Chpt: How and Why Companies and Institutions are Collaborating

Collaborations come in many forms. Alliances are continually evolving to include not just the classic corporate business to business partnerships, but increasingly public-private partnerships, as well as business and academia partnerships. According to a 2018 Harvard Business Review article by Kenneth Lutchen, “in the last decade, there has been an explosion in the number of research deals between companies and universities.”

How and Why Companies and Institutions are Collaborating: IBM & MIT for Artificial Intelligence, and Sanofi & Partners Healthcare for BioPharma Innovation

Collaborations come in many forms. Alliances are continually evolving to include not just the classic corporate business to business partnerships, but increasingly public-private partnerships, as well as business and academia partnerships. According to a 2018 Harvard Business Review article by Kenneth Lutchen, “in the last decade, there has been an explosion in the number of research deals between companies and universities.” In our own backyard we have some very exciting and interesting examples to learn from.

At this event we will discuss Best Practices from Business and University Alliances with IBM and MIT, as well as Sanofi and Partners Healthcare.  We will have a facilitated panel discussion to learn from the unique characteristics of these partnerships, with focus on collaboration-related themes such as those listed below.
