KTN to Host Applicant Briefing Webinar on Mechanising and Improving Advanced Therapy Manufacture Competition
Posted on 16/08/2019
A new funding competition is set to open on Tuesday 27th August, titled ‘Mechanising and Improving Advanced Therapy Manufacture’.
Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, will invest up to £3.7 million in innovation projects. These will be to allow robust process design for the manufacture of advanced therapies. This funding is from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund. The aim of this competition is to encourage inventors of advanced therapies to introduce affordable technology during early innovation stages. This technology will enable them to reproduce the manufacture of their product at a commercial scale.
This competition will encourage inventors of advanced therapies to introduce affordable technology early in their process development. This technology will enable them to make the manufacture of their product commercially reproducible. Projects should aim to work with bodies that generate standards, such as the National Physical Laboratory, the LGC Group (formerly Laboratory of the Government Chemist), BSI (British Standards Institute) or the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control. Projects must focus on one or more of the following: gene therapy; cell therapy; and engineered tissue.
The competition will close on Wednesday 25th September at 12:00pm. For more information on the competition please click here.
