Developing a beneficial partnership

Each of our partnerships is unique. In general, though, we try to establish a shared understanding of the following factors:

  • Project objective. What will distinguish this product from its competitors? What must the product accomplish?

  • Technical features. What is the nature of the active ingredient? What features are required of the nanoparticle? What surface funtionalization is required?

  • Timing. What is the optimum project development schedule?

  • Testing program. How can we test the product?

  • Funding. What resources are available to fuel the development program over what time period?

  • Key stakeholders. Who is involved, and how will we develop and manage the partnership?
