Are you looking to partner your promising science or assets? Interested in collaborating with AstraZeneca but not sure where to start?

Through a series of video tutorials, AstraZeneca’s business development team are sharing their expertise in identifying, negotiating and sustaining collaborations that create benefit for patients and a win-win outcome for both partners.

They will also reveal their top tips for how you can successfully pitch your science or assets to AstraZeneca.

You can find all of these tutorials and resources here.

And from the researchers' side - hear how collaboration with AstraZeneca has benefitted academics at the University of Glasgow GLAZgo Discovery Centre and the Medical Research Council.

 

EPSRC-funded Placements for Physical Science & Technology

Funding is available to allow EPSRC-funded postdocs to take up short term placements in a partner organisation in industry, the public sector or third sector (not at other Universities).

The funding is intended to enable the postdoc to apply their research-based knowledge and expertise in a different context, helping the partner organisation innovate and the postdoc to gain valuable work experience.  

Funding is available to cover salary and travel costs for up to three months, full or part-time. Through the scheme, the postdocs must find a suitable company or organisation and obtain agreement with their PI to pursue the placement prior to applying for funding.

The choice of research topic is left open, and applications should show:

  • evidence of how the placement(s) will address an industry need
  • evidence that the placement activity will be focused on knowledge exchange between the postdoc and the partner organisation
  • evidence that the placement will enable further postdoc skills development in a non-academic setting.

The placement should be completed within 12 months of the award or by 31 March 2020, whichever is earlier. An agreement between the partner organisation and University will be required to cover intellectual property, confidentiality and other matters.

How to apply

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until March 2020 and should be submitted to researchstrategy@admin.cam.ac.uk using the IAA form together with a letter of support from the partner organisation confirming the details of their involvement.
