On the occasion of a UK ‘biomanufacturing of biologics and advanced therapies’ mission to Montreal, Innovate UK, in partnership with BIOQuébec, Montréal InVivo, Canada’s Trade Commissioner Service and the National Research Council of Canada, are hosting a technology partnering and networking event.

This event is aimed at Quebec companies with innovative technologies that enable the development and manufacture of novel biological therapeutic products and delivery systems – especially those that might be interested in pursuing joint R&D collaborations with UK partners.  

The UK visit to Montréal is set against the backdrop of a recent $32M Canada-UK Memorandum of Cooperation on Biomanufacturing. This event will provide information about this partnership, together with an overview of the UK’s thriving biomanufacturing ecosystem and details of future joint funding opportunities. It will allow you to meet and discuss potential partnerships with some exciting UK companies and research organisations. We’d be delighted if you could join us. Please register here
