This event brings examples of strategies for getting the right funding and the right partnerships for moving Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) from research ideas to clinical products. Hear about the experiences of academics and SMEs who are on the path to the clinic and what big pharma companies are looking for when scouting external innovations.

There will also be a networking event aimed at partnering academics with commercial expertise.

Whether academic, SME, big pharma or investor there is something for you at this free event!
