Promoting partnerships

Promoting partnerships


To meet the justified expectations of veterinarians, animal health professionals and animal owners, it is necessary that the health community - both the public and private sectors - work together to generate even more therapeutic innovations.

Innovation is born from the merging of know-how in different sectors.      

Open innovation supposes that is it quicker and more effective, in a spirit of collaborative work, to no longer depend solely on one's own research in order to innovate. This method of innovation is based on sharing, cooperation between companies and public research.

This knowledge and these multidisciplinary exchanges have enabled new advances in understanding diseases and illnesses in animal health. From this research have been born innovations with new treatments and new pharmaceutical forms.

As the innovators of tomorrow, partnerships - be they public/private or private/private - enable the emergence and maturation of excellence projects that should be developed and continued. In a complex and changing economic regulatory framework, partnered research should be encouraged, its implementation should be simpler, and its monitoring should be better organised. Access to therapeutic innovation, the influence of French research abroad, and tomorrow's jobs are all at stake.


The R&D dating for animal health and innovation have been developed to promote partnerships.
