About the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre

The Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre is a collaboration between CPI, University of Strathclyde, UKRI, Scottish Enterprise and founding industry partners, AstraZeneca and GSK.

The new centre will ensure the UK is a technology and innovation leader in pharmaceutical manufacturing. The initial focus will be on technology translation for small molecule drug manufacture.

With a collaborative innovation culture and state-of the art facilities, the new facility will enable industry, academia, healthcare providers and regulators to work collaboratively to address challenges and maximise technology opportunities within the medicines supply chain.

Due for completion in 2021, the facility itself will be located at the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland site in Renfrewshire, Scotland.
