Dr Jon de Vlieger (Lygature’s Senior Business Developer) and Dr Remco de Vrueh (Lygature’s Senior Program Manager), together with professor Daan Crommelin (past vice-chair of the scientific advisory board of the Innovative Medicines Initiative) wrote on invitation the editorial of the scientific journal Frontiers in Medicine.

This special Research Topic edition was titled: Public-private partnerships as drivers of innovation in healthcare.

Having managed over 100 public-private partnerships with over 200 partners (combined budget >900 million Euros) since 2006, Lygature continues to share its experience and views on the impact of the public private partnership concept. The editorial describes the evolution of public-private partnerships in healthcare since the turn of the century and sketches the increasing complexity of such collaborations.

With partners outside pharma and academia now joining public-private partnerships, the dynamics and ‘culture’ within partnerships have changed. The question that remains is: where will the public-private partnership concept in the world of medicine development go from here? At Lygature we are looking forward to helping shape the research collaborations of the future.
