Event Details

Vaccines development and manufacture – a forward look at the Innovation Landscape for the UK 

The KTN will be holding this event, in partnership with UCL, on the 6th September in London. The aim of the meeting is to bring together the vaccine development and manufacturing community in human health in the UK, to learn about the latest innovative technologies, hear about current UK capabilities and DoH investments to date, the work of the UK Vaccine network and also potentially future opportunities for funding through mechansims such as the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.

We are expecting about 90 delegates on the day from the wider sector. Thanks to the support of our hosts, and supporters, the KTN is able to deliver this meeting as a free event for the community.

This one day event aligns with the KTN’s activities in medicines bioprocessing and manufacturing, as well as the Medicines Manufacturing Industry Partnership (MMIP).
