It’s all about collaboration.
When the right teams come together, great things are possible.
We understand the frustration that comes with trying to find expert researchers perfectly suited to the needs of the project. Researchers that have the right field expertise; the ability to work well with industry; experience with the specific methodologies, techniques or systems required, amongst many other factors.
If any of these elements are lacking, so too is the likelihood that the research will come up short.
As scientists, we wanted to find a more efficient academic partner matching process. With this in mind, we established Academix and created proprietary machine learning algorithms that take into account previously undervalued factors while looking at research needs and potential collaborations holistically.
Discovery of external innovation and academic partners is time-consuming and highly subjective. We want to help you find the perfect collaboration for your specific R&D needs.
