Innovative Technologies for Nucleic Acid Medicines Manufacturing Competition

Closing Date: 21/12/2022

UK registered organisations can apply for grants to fund industrial research projects focused on manufacturing innovation for nucleic acid medicines.

This competition is operated by Innovate UK (IUK), which is part of UK Research & Innovation (UKRI).

This Innovate UK (IUK) competition aims to improve the resource efficiency, productivity and scalability for the manufacture of nucleic acid medicines in the UK.

This will be achieved by stimulating the development and implementation of innovative technologies. This must allow for growth at scale including, but not limited to, emerging products targeting large patient populations.

Projects must be focused on the manufacturing of the active nucleic acid ingredient. Applicants must be able to demonstrate an improvement in resource efficiency, productivity or throughput as compared with current manufacturing technology utilising a recognised metric, for example, with process mass intensity.

Funding proposals must show how the project will improve the productivity, competitiveness and growth for at least one UK small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) involved in the project.
