Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre

The Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre brings world-leading science and technology expertise under one roof at Scotland’s home of manufacturing innovation.

This major centre accelerating state-of-the-art solutions in medicines development and manufacturing is now open at Netherton.

It is delivering 100 initial high-value jobs and will enhance international investment into Scottish life sciences and manufacturing innovation.

Forecast to generate £200million in technology innovation in its first five years, the centre is a unique collaboration led by UK technology innovation organisation CPI and supported with £88million in public and private investment.

New advanced technology and manufacturing solutions developed between CPI and pharmaceutical companies based at the Centre will help the industry become more productive and sustainable, benefitting people across the globe through the development of new and improved medicines.

Scotland's home of manufacturing innovation

The facility we have built in Renfrewshire is the first example of a consistent and concerted effort from the pharma industry to collaborate. This will be crucial to unlocking the challenges we've faced so far to translate research into tangible benefits that will help address unmet health needs.
