The ERDF-funded SPRINT project, delivered by CPI, is partnering with Innovate UK EDGE to provide a FREE interactive joint event discussing the various funding and partnership opportunities available to innovative SMEs in the Cambridge area and beyond.
This event will take place at Cambridge Science Park, giving attendees a comprehensive overview of the support available through the SPRINT project and Innovate UK EDGE's RTO Catapult Grant.
The CPI and Innovate UK EDGE teams will also be sharing information and learnings from companies they have worked with to transform their ideas into reality, including cutting-edge technology in synthetic biology company Genenet and synthetic DNA manufacturing company 4BaseBio.
Representatives from both companies will present a short presentation on the projects they have undertaken with support from CPI and Innovate UK EDGE.
