Partnering Strategy

At Lilly, we recognize the important role that your work plays in helping us generate innovation and achieving our common goal: improving the lives of individual patients around the world. In collaboration with our partners, we look for opportunities to help bring important medicines to the patients who need them.

From the time we begin partnership evaluation activities at Lilly, we have an implementation mindset. That is, while not every proposed project receives a "go" decision, we believe in starting the partnership with transparency and approaching decision-making with the long term in mind, creating a customized approach that leverages the strengths of all partners.
