Funded SPRINT Workshop: Supporting your biological product innovations through consultancy and development assistance
Tue, 07 Mar 2023
• Are you developing a biological novel therapeutic or working with companies that do?
• Would you like to increase your knowledge of the entire product/process lifecycle and access support for your product development?
• Would you like to upskill your staff in biological process and product development, including upstream, downstream, analytics and formulation?
CPI is delivering a new ERDF Project, SPRINT (Supporting Process Innovation for Novel Therapies) across the Cambridge and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA) region to support and accelerate the commercialisation of Novel Biological Instrumentation, Products, and Therapeutics.
As part of the programme, we are pleased to announce an interactive, two-day workshop on the 7th and 8th of March 2023, at the Clayton Hotel in Cambridge and will be fully funded (worth around £1,000 per attendee) for eligible SMEs from the CPCA region.
A small group of participants will encourage interactions with the technical experts and fellow attendees.
Companies eligible for this workshop:
- Companies should be developing novel biotherapeutics or products and services within this field wanting to upskill their workforce.
- Need to be SMEs located in the CPCA region.
The workshop will provide an opportunity to receive in-depth understanding of the Biologics capabilities at CPI and how these can help your organisation progress your innovation to market.
The programme will consist of presentations by CPI technical experts and business development specialists, followed by questions and answers. There will also be a two-hour 1:1 confidential deep dive which can provide support around funding streams and technical advice to SMEs.
Here’s what attendees from last year had to say about the session
- “I use the workbook as my daily bible”
- “Based upon the best practices shared in the workshop, I have been able to optimise my process”
- “All the sessions were very useful and very informative for planning for the future”
