MSD Innovation Factory: external talent and collaborative development

As a leading pharmaceutical company, MSD is aware of the need to incorporate innovation on everything we do to deliver the best possible value to our patients and customers. However, the best ideas may not always pop up where challenges are identified. That is why MSD wants to support and partner with external talent to collaboratively develop competitive solutions following a win-win- win approach.

Since 2016 the MSD Innovation Factory has been established as an open innovation vehicle for the EEMEA (Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa) region with the main objective of finding co-creation opportunities with external partners to deliver sustainable solutions for our patients and customers. Join us in this great endeavour!

 The Innovation Factory is supported by TICBioMed, a business association specialized digital health.
