Technology and innovation centres update

Technology and innovation centres update

11 Apr 2011

We had more than 500 responses to our Prospectus which went out in January with feedback on both the overall programme for technology and innovation centres and priorities for future investment.

Since then we have taken the first steps in our programme by announcing the formation of a high value manufacturing technology and innovation centre on March 17 followed by the announcement on March 23 that we will be creating a second centre in cell therapies.

In May we will publish a strategy and implementation plan which will provide details of the next stage of the programme including:

  • the process to create the cell therapies centre 
  • our assessment of the many suggestions for new areas for centres
  • how the programme will be taken forward 
  • the new oversight committee which will help us manage the whole programme
  • a summary of the main points made in the responses to the Prospectus

We will also be announcing details of how to submit expressions of interest in the cell therapies technology and innovation centre during May

We will continue to discuss potential areas for centres with interested parties as we prepare for the next stage of the programme.

Regular updates on progress will be posted on this site  as the programme develops.
