Successful innovation delivers products and process improvements that help companies survive, diversify and grow and creates high value jobs for the UK economy. To support innovation in the UK’s Chemical and Pharmaceutical industries, CPI is running an Innovation Support Programme until April 2017.
This Innovation Support Programme is there to help companies, start-ups and inventors to identify and implement the next generation of processes and manufacturing technologies.
The Programme is also accessible to the wider community of companies, research groups and university spin-outs that supply the UK Chemical and Pharmaceutical sectors with equipment, new product designs or new process technology. In some cases companies who take products from the said sectors and convert these into high value goods can also qualify for innovation support opportunities.
This Innovation Support Programme aims to work with a wide variety of stakeholders in the various supply chains and consists of several components.
At the core of this Support Programme will be CPI’s Innovation Integrator® model, which is a structured diagnostic business innovation tool that helps identify the factors that can help your company, product, process or technology move forward.
