Global search for science: How do multinational companies establish collaborations with international universities?
As shown by the recent cases of the development of covid vaccines, pharmaceutical multinational companies often need to partner up with leading universities to quickly develop new knowledge and eventually drugs.
Researchers Claudio Fassio and Pauline Mattson studies how large pharma companies establish collaborations with international universities that are located in geographically distant countries. How are these distant partnerships initiated, what is the role of the individual scientists involved in the collaborations? And how is the knowledge developed eventually used by the companies?
Welcome to a lecture within the framework of the Crafoord Foundation's science lunches. Claudio Fassio and Pauline Mattson are both researchers at the Department of Business Administration, Lund University School of Economics and Management, LUSEM.
