Online

Free

The Infection Innovation Consortium’s SME Support Programme (Formulated Materials for Infectious Disease Prevention) is a European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) programme, which aims to overcome roadblocks to product development in the formulation of infectious disease products by providing eligible businesses in the Liverpool City Region (excluding Halton) with access to state-of-the-art equipment and skilled personnel. Eligible businesses can access (no-cost) support within Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine or the University of Liverpool via three workspaces to problem solve, understand technology performance or generate important data.

The programme welcomes businesses in the Health and Life Sciences sector as well as those who work in engineering, chemicals, agriculture, medical devices and more. All that is required is that businesses have technologies or products that may have an application in relation to infection and/or hygiene.

This webinar will give businesses information on how they can benefit from The Infection Innovation Consortium’s SME Support Programme (Formulated Materials for Infectious Disease Prevention) in more detail, as well as giving attendees the opportunity to ask questions. We will also be joined by Andy Cairns, Programme Manager for Health Matters who works with businesses who are looking to engage with the NHS.

You will hear from key speakers:

  • Hannah Randles – Host, Health & Life Sciences Champion, Growth Platform
  • Lisa Baldwin – Senior Business Manager, Infection Innovation Consortium: iiCON, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine
  • Andy Cairns – Programme Manager for Health Matters, Innovation Agency
