The Faculty of Medicine at Imperial aims to accelerate the translation of research findings into better care for patients and populations. Working together with business and industry is essential to achieve this goal.
We help industrial partners to design the right partnership for their specific needs and make connections with our academics.
We also work with academics to help them find and open doors to explore opportunities for research and translation for mutual benefit. The Faculty's Industry Partnerships and Commercialisation team belongs to the Enterprise division, Imperial’s dedicated department for industry interactions and business ventures.
How we can work together to assist you
- Identifying an academic fit by understanding industry targets, needs and internal mechanisms for academic collaborations, and identifying the right academics to fit with the company’s areas of interest.
- Gaining access by promoting industrial opportunities to Imperial academics, connecting to industrial partners with Imperial academics, and structuring the appropriate type of partnership.
- Partnering and innovation through managing the process from scientific discussion to business plans, facilitating negotiations with Imperial’s Legal team, and licensing through Imperial Innovations.
