Manufacturing success

Here are just a few examples of how working with the HVM Catapult is delivering for UK manufacturing

In 2019/20 the High Value Manufacturing Catapult's Centres supported companies across 4,646 projects to harness the power of innovation and strengthen their performance. Those companies ranged from small social enterprises to global giants employing thousands of people both directly and through their UK supply chains. We have seen that our work with companies, no matter their size, helps to improve resilience, drive down waste and carbon emissions and improve their bottom line.

As personalised medicine becomes a reality, the necessity for small batch sizes makes traditional manufacturing approaches prohibitively expensive. Funded by Innovate UK, CPI and partners Ipsen Biopharm and Touchlight Genetics joined forces to examine the use of CFE to produce a novellinear DNA vector, usefulfor targeted medications.
