Partner with Duke
Duke’s Office for External Partnerships is committed to collaborating with your company to establish a sponsored research arrangement that benefits both parties. This arrangement will involve Duke University faculty members and sometimes students and aims to align with your research interests and objectives as well as those of Duke.
To facilitate this collaboration, we will connect you with Duke researchers who possess the expertise and capabilities to address your organization’s most challenging problems. Alternatively, we can explore the possibility of sponsoring research projects that contribute to the further development of existing Duke intellectual property, which may subsequently be licensed to your organization.
By engaging in this sponsored research arrangement, your organization will gain access to the knowledge, resources, and innovative solutions offered by Duke faculty. Simultaneously, Duke researchers will receive the necessary financial support to pursue their research endeavors and apply their expertise in practical applications.
Should you be interested in pursuing research opportunities with Duke faculty, we encourage you to contact our Office for External Partnerships. We will provide you with detailed information and tailored guidance specific to your organization’s research interests and requirements. Please keep in mind that the specifics of the sponsored research arrangement may vary depending on the unique circumstances and agreements negotiated between the parties involved.
Our team ensures that the agreements adhere to standards of the university and industry while also providing support throughout the entire process. This includes everything from proposal development to negotiating contract terms and ensuring compliance with regulations.
From identifying suitable fellowship opportunities to negotiating the terms of the fellowship agreement, our team facilitates sponsored fellowship agreements that align with the research interests and career goals of the fellow. We ensure the fellowship complies with relevant regulations and provide ongoing support to the fellow throughout the duration of the fellowship.
Our team identifies specific needs and facilitates in-kind donations to the relevant Duke department or research center. We ensure the donation is structured to meet the needs of both your organization and Duke faculty, and that it complies with relevant regulations.
Our team helps establish relationships that facilitate collaboration and knowledge-sharing. We will facilitate introductions and connections between individuals and organizations with similar research interests and objectives. Our office also provides ongoing support to maintain and foster relationships, potentially leading to future opportunities for collaboration and partnership.
We provide exposure and recognition to your organization by connecting you with research and innovation-related events and opportunities at Duke. We work closely with partners to identify relevant events, providing ongoing support for logistics and coordination.
