Partnering with external specialists in their respective fields of brain disease is a cornerstone of our strategy, and we always strive to be the partner of choice. Lundbeck holds the knowledge, capabilities and financial stability to spur innovation, both through our internal laboratories and external partners.
We enter into partnerships recognizing that your business strengths are different and complementary to our own. This is why we customize each partnership to ensure value creation and to translate today’s know-how into tomorrow’s advancements in life-changing therapies.
We have a rigorous process to screen, assess, and execute on external opportunities ranging from technologies, pipeline assets, and company acquisitions. We use a tried-and-tested cross-functional approach to conduct an effective in-depth evaluation of every business development opportunity.
Our business development team works closely with internal stakeholders and subject matter experts to ensure an agile exchange, knowledge sharing and fast decision making.
In this way, we aim to create the strongest possible foundation for a mutual understanding of how to shape the market for tomorrow.
