Academic-industry partnerships in decline, ABPI survey shows


Despite the drive towards externalisation of research and development and the pressing need to tap into new sources of innovation, a survey by the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) has found significantly fewer partnerships between companies and academia in 2011 than two years previously.

The survey identified 1,199 such partnerships in total last year, 11% fewer than the 1,348 recorded by the ABPI for 2009. In 2007 there were 1,463 industry-academic partnerships overall across the UK.
