CPI to support UK SMEs in the Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industries

The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) is running an Innovation Support Programme aimed at SMEs from the Chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Funded by the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, this Innovation Support Programme aims to help companies, start-ups and inventors to identify and implement the next generation of processes and manufacturing technologies. The Programme, which will run until April 2017, 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. CPI has worked with over 2000 partners to date and has helped many companies to develop their business models and demonstrate opportunities to assess value creation opportunities quickly and effectively. CPI’s business network and its extensive track record in innovation and process technology development gives its clients highly beneficial access to insights, product applications and technologies from other industries and sectors. CPI’s approach to innovation is systematic, simple and quick so it allows its partner companies to implement their plans more quickly and with lower risk. For more information click here
