Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures’ Corporate Partnerships team is the university’s front door for corporate partners seeking academic collaboration. We specialize in facilitating industry collaborations that translate the novel work of Johns Hopkins researchers into real-world applications.

We strive for collaborative, high-impact, efficient partnerships. From initial discussions and framing deal terms to final execution and alliance management, we streamline the establishment, implementation and ongoing management of collaborations.

Our approach

Each collaboration is carefully crafted to maximize impact, where JHTV helps to guide its design, implementation, and evolution.

  1. WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF THE PARTNERSHIP?

    Research collaborations with Johns Hopkins involve a number of technology focus areas and take many forms, including master research agreements, individual sponsored projects, clinical trials. Many collaborations also focus on education and training activities, leveraging Johns Hopkins student talent.

  2. WHAT SPECIFIC AREAS OF RESEARCH & TRAINING SHOULD WE TARGET?

    Once an initial plan is developed, potential collaborators are invited to meet with Johns Hopkins leadership and specific faculty. These meetings help to refine and confirm a productive path forward.

  3. WHAT INVESTMENT AND DEAL TERMS MAKE SENSE?

    The Corporate Partnerships team helps to finalize project scope and establish collaboration terms. Large-scale research collaborations typically have three-to five-year terms, but extensions may occur with mutual agreement between the industry collaborator and Johns Hopkins.

  4. HOW CAN WE GET THE WORK GOING?

    Our team facilitates the university contracting process and oversees the implementation of governance and alliance management structures. Often times, an Alliance Management Team is dedicated to the implementation and support of the project.

  5. IS THE PROJECT CREATING VALUE?

    Our team remains involved through the life of a contract to ensure a successful collaboration, managing any troubleshooting, modifications and scope changes.

  6. IS THERE A TECHNOLOGY LICENSING OPPORTUNITY?

    Several of our research collaborations have resulted in the development of commercialize-able technologies. Typically, the sponsoring entity will exercise its right to license the technology.

  7. WHERE SHOULD THE COLLABORATION GROW NEXT?

    JHTV takes a long-term view of these collaborations, which evolve and grow as companies' priorities change and as the research evolves. We help to manage transitions and pivot, where appropriate.
