Your innovations and partnership are integral to our success

Successful partnerships start with a clear and transparent process that ultimately leads to developing common goals. We view every partnership opportunity as unique and our partnering process is customized to your asset and what you are looking for in a partnership with Ipsen. We aim to build a relationship with you through our partnering process.


In general, we begin our partnering process with you by ensuring your program is matched with a specialist in our External Innovation team with appropriate expertise for initial assessment at a non-confidential level.


If we are aligned on the key aspects pertaining to the potential of your program, its fit with Ipsen’s strategy and our mutual objectives of a partnership, we would progress our discussion under a confidentiality agreement to further our understanding of your program and partnering objectives, and your appreciation of what value Ipsen can bring as a partner.  Our integrated team of experts will work closely with you to evaluate your confidential data and the potential of your program in detail. Our Global Business Development specialist will engage with you fully to explore a partnership structure that is mutually beneficial.


Our unique combination of size, scope and expertise as a global biopharmaceutical with a biotech mindset enables us to be decisive, competitive and creative in our partnering process. We conduct a transparent process and will stay fully engaged with you along the way.
If your asset or technology fits within one of our four core areas of focus as defined in our Partnering Focus section, we want to talk to you. Please contact our team or meet us at one of our upcoming events.
