MVA Oncology Network meeting – Partnering with AbbVie


Welcome to the first webinar for the Medicon Valley Alliance Oncology Network!

The MVA Oncology Network organises this webinar where AbbVie will explain  their view on external innovation and explain their partnering strategy. Until we can meet in larger groups, we have decided to bring the possibility to share experiences in a shorter webinar format in stead of our regular networking meetings.

Webinar on partnering with AbbVie 

At AbbVie, we partner to achieve two important outcomes: to deliver innovative medicines and to make a remarkable impact on people’s lives.
We start with a highly integrated approach to developing and sustaining our partnerships. In our approach to external innovation, we work as one connected unit with a commitment to stablishing collaborations across the development continuum.
Our goal is to create long-term mutually beneficial relationships. With a shared vision as our foundation, we align our collective capabilities in service of a joint mission to conduct groundbreaking science and bring innovative medicines to societies around the globe.

Slides from the presentations are available for members of the MVA Oncology Network upon request at:
