We are delighted that you will be joining us for the annual MMIP conference, and that it will once again be face to face. We have a fantastic location at Redworth Hall near Darlington on the 21st June from 10-4pm, enabling the visit during that day to either CPI or Fujifilm.
Following the launch of the Medicines and Devices Manufacturing Transformation Fund and the Life Sciences Innovation Transformation Fund supporting the implementation of the revised UK Government Life Sciences Vision, the UK needs to establish how it can compete in a very fast paced world. This conference will focus on how we will implement this vision and further develop the manufacturing capability of the UK over the longer term to build on our strengths in Innovative R+D, the support in manufacturing with the MMIC and the Catapults. It will also offer a chance to discuss with senior stakeholders both from government charged with implementing it and those in industry supporting it.
Overview of the Medicines Manufacturing Industry Partnership
MMIP represents the voice of medicines manufacturers in the UK. It was established jointly by the Government and the biopharmaceutical industry in 2014 to ensure that the UK is recognised by the global medicines industry as a world-class advanced centre for medicines manufacturing.
The UK's medicines industry is one of the country's leading manufacturing sectors, with exports worth around £30bn.
The Partnership aims to ensure that the UK continues to be an attractive place for this high-value industry to secure exports, provide high skilled job opportunities and contribute to solving the country's productivity puzzle.
The UK Life Sciences Industrial Strategy recognised the sector’s high productivity and the MMIP is now an expert group under the direction of the Life Sciences Council.
MMIP is supported by the ABPI, the BioIndustry Association (BIA) and the Knowledge Transfer Network, and includes leadership from Allergan Biologics, AstraZeneca, Eisai, FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and ReNeuron. It has a senior project director, employed by the ABPI, and additional dedicated resources provided by partners.
