This conference will focus on how we will implement this vision and further develop the manufacturing capability of the UK over the longer term to build on our strengths in Innovative R+D, the support in manufacturing with the CPI-led Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre and the Catapults.

It will also offer a chance to discuss with senior stakeholders both from government charged with implementing it and those in industry supporting it.

Overview of the Medicines Manufacturing Industry Partnership

MMIP represents the voice of medicines manufacturers in the UK. It was established jointly by the Government and the biopharmaceutical industry in 2014 to ensure that the UK is recognised by the global medicines industry as a world-class advanced centre for medicines manufacturing.
The UK’s medicines industry is one of the country’s leading manufacturing sectors, with exports worth around £30bn.

The Partnership aims to ensure that the UK continues to be an attractive place for this high-value industry to secure exports, provide high skilled job opportunities and contribute to solving the country’s productivity puzzle.

The UK Life Sciences Industrial Strategy recognised the sector’s high productivity and the MMIP is now an expert group under the direction of the Life Sciences Council.

MMIP is supported by the ABPI, the BioIndustry Association (BIA) and the Knowledge Transfer Network, and includes leadership from Allergan Biologics, AstraZeneca, Eisai, FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and ReNeuron. It has a senior project director, employed by the ABPI, and additional dedicated resources provided by partners.
