Collaborations, Alliances, and Business Development Support

Many of our faculty are recognized key opinion leaders and intensely interested in their chosen research areas.  We can help external collaborators assess fit of external projects and opportunities in the research portfolios of our internationally recognized faculty and research programs.  Not all opportunities fit the mold of academic research programs, but we can help identify veins of common interest and balance assymetries  in objectives that commonly differ between academic and industry collaborators.

The University of Arizona has partnered with Covalent Data and SciVal to provide a searchable menu of content enabling potential collaborators to find research capabilities and expertise for collaborations, projects, consulting, and other elements of domain expert engagement. Alternatively, call one of the University of Arizona business development professionals for help with your collaboration efforts.
