Speaker heads-up : what’s new on the conference side?

Four hands on the steering wheel? How are academia/industry alliances managed?

3 high-level experts already confirmed to share their expertise with us

  • Jan Van der Schueren, Discovery Site Head, Galapagos NV , BE
  • Jutta Roth, Business Development Manager,  University of Oxford, UK
  • Maria Bobadilla, Senior Director, Extending Innovation Network, Roche, CH


Scheduled December 2nd at 4 pm, the session will address the challenge to create a business model that protects both parties, how to make it flexible enough to fuel innovation and decide what kind of structural leadership will be the most effective in running these alliances.

The decision on who will control the direction of the collaboration is as important as the structure of the agreement itself.

Will it be a joint steering committee with equal representation, will it be individuals who understand both parties (academics and industry)?

What are the concerns expressed by both parties when choosing one or the other option?

We are already are eager to see the aftermath of this thrilling session!
