Consulting services: Shionogi
Oxford Enterprise worked with Shionogi & Co on the Shionogi Science Program as part of a plan to buffer the 2016 patent loss of one of their main products. Having clarified needs, Oxford Enterprise engaged in a programme of technology scouting and relationship building across carefully selected research institutions in the UK, including a survey of the technology landscape and identification of the best UK scientists for sector-specific requirements.
Our relationship with the University of Oxford, as well as the other universities internationally for whom we support their technology transfer function is invaluable in sourcing cutting-edge technologies based on World-leading academic research.
Our efforts presented Shionogi with over 100 cutting-edge research collaborations in the UK, significantly increasing shareholder value.
