Our partnering process

We have a dedicated partnering team who monitor the market in order to identify promising projects. After an in-depth discussion and evaluation of a project, together with a partner, we will explore the potential deal structures that fit both sides. We consider each deal to be unique and we are open to various deal structures (collaborations, in-licensing, minority investments, acquisitions), depending on the needs of the partner and the project.
