From concept to commercialisation

Experts who understand your innovation needs

We know that taking your idea through to commercialisation may require a broader range of skills outside of your core area of technical and scientific expertise. For your innovation to be successful, a complete supply chain is needed from raw materials to finished product, as well as a comprehensive regulatory, pricing, sales and marketing strategy. We employ bright minds from both academia and industry, to create a bespoke team that will provide the right support and help you navigate the journey to commercialisation.

Supporting our customers to commercialisation

At CPI, we provide flexible access to our advanced and industry-relevant facilities, for product and process design, development and scale-up. Throughout the process of commercialisation, we offer transparent and impartial advice that will help you make informed decisions in order to reduce risk. We enable you to demonstrate the feasibility of your ideas so that you can approach investors or funding bodies with confidence, while ensuring your IP is fully protected throughout the process.

Facilitating innovative partnerships 

By forming innovation networks across the supply chain we facilitate the necessary partnerships for effective innovation. These innovation networks share cross-sector knowledge, allowing us to apply learnings in one sector to problems in another.

As part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, we can also provide access to a large network of problem solvers and potential end users. Our approach uniquely positions us to accelerate the innovation cycle and get your product to market faster.
