  Summary: There is increasing expectation that Universities and research institutes should be skilled at setting up and developing these broad and long term relationships – for collaborative research, KT, graduate employment and other interactions. Managed well, strategic alliances between organisations can deliver mutual benefit, enable new outcomes and create considerable benefit for society. This course will enable delegates to be more effective in their business development management role and understand how to develop long-term, fruitful strategic partnerships. Suitable for:   The course is ideal for those working in higher education and public sector research organisations with responsibility for brokering/managing strategic relationships between organisations to develop commercial opportunities and research interactions. Those who have attended a PraxisUnico ‘core’ course (Fundamentals of Technology Transfer or Research Contracts) might find this to be a valuable next step. Learning objectives: On completing the course, delegates will be able to: Understand the different forms of strategic alliance Map the types of partnership most likely to suit their own organisation and the most appropriate governance/management arrangements Convert existing relationships into more strategic alliances Develop an internal business case to win senior management support Understand the risks and identify the main issues that can derail a developing partnership Understand what feeds a strategic alliance to make it sustainable Instigate appropriate activities to support or lead the development of a strategic partnership. A highly interactive and participative programme, delegates will also have the opportunity to hear from (and speak directly with) academic, industrial and business development practitioners from some exemplary alliances.
