Industry, research and commercial collaborations

Collaborations have formed an essential part of our heritage and we are committed to working with our partners to achieve our goal of making disease a thing of the past.

We build strong, long-term collaborations that help us to learn and to develop better medicines. 

We have more than 150 partnerships, across all aspects of the healthcare spectrum, including projects with large pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies, academic institutions, public-private partnerships and open-campus initiatives.

Partnering externally through Johnson & Johnson Innovation

Johnson & Johnson Innovation Ltd seeks to positively impact human health through innovation. We do this by helping external entrepreneurs create healthcare solutions that improve peoples’ lives around the world. We work side by side with innovators throughout their journey, providing a robust exchange of ideas and resources to support them. We are a global network who collaborate across all three sectors: pharmaceuticals, consumer health and medical devices

In EMEA, we have created a unique infrastructure that encompasses the whole region. The Innovation Centre, based in London, UK, acts as a gateway into Europe and the wider region, enabling innovators to access a diverse range of experts and ideas to accelerate their innovations. For us, there is no one-size-fits-all model for our collaborations.

Instead, we tailor our offering according to the individual partner's needs, whether that be providing scientific mentoring and commercialisation expertise, access to laboratory space, seed investment or early-stage funding of R&D collaborations. We also help incubate companies through our JLABS @ BE in Belgium, offering them mentorship and infrastructure. Companies seeking funding can also receive investment through JJDC, which is our strategic venture capital arm.
