Innovate UK Funding competition - cell and gene therapies industrial manufacture
Businesses can apply for a share of up to £11 million to industrialise and establish the large-scale manufacture of cell and gene therapies.
Innovate UK is to invest up to £11 million in collaborative research and development projects to stimulate large-scale manufacturing in the cell and gene therapy sector.
Innovate UK is seeking proposals to industrialise established manufacturing processes for cell and gene therapies. The aim of this competition is to develop the manufacturing capability of candidate cell and gene therapies so they are ready for pivotal clinical trials and early market supply.
It is expected that projects range in size from total costs of £1 million to £2.5 million. We may consider projects outside this range if you contact us before 2 November to discuss. Projects should last between 1 and 3 years.
Projects must be collaborative and must include at least one UK-registered small or medium-sized enterprise (SME). A business must lead the project.
