A Novel Format to Foster Innovation – the AbbVie Partnering Day

In a continuously expanding and diversifying life science universe, more and more often global healthcare companies are looking for external sources of innovation. Health Axis Europe Partnering (HAEP) is a project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research to facilitate this knowledge transfer between innovators (academia and SMEs) on the one side and innovation seekers on the other. For that purpose, AbbVie has engaged project leader BioRN and HAEP partners Ci3 Cluster, M2OLIE, Mannheim University of Applied Sciences and the Health Axis Europe to identify innovative projects from within their respective networks. The aim was to identify an effective match with AbbVie’s key therapeutic areas for future collaborations.

Last Tuesday, May 14th, BioRN and AbbVie organized the first “AbbVie Partnering Day” in Heidelberg. “We are very happy that AbbVie chose the HAEP scouting tool for their partnering needs. It is core to BioRN’s strategy in supporting translation of the excellent science in our region into new treatments,” says Julia Schaft, Managing Director of BioRN. “During the AbbVie Partnering Day innovators from the Rhine-Neckar region were able to pitch their cutting-edge science and technology and could find out what partnering with a global pharmaceutical company actually entails.”
