Canada is investing heavily in advanced therapies making considerable investments in research and commercialisation through government funding programmes and centres such as the Centre for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine (CCRM).

In this context, in February 2020, a Global Expert Mission took place to Canada (Toronto and Vancouver) to better understand the country’s R&I landscapes and to establish potential opportunities for collaboration in the advanced therapies sector. This webinar will present the findings and insights from the mission and collaborations that have happened since.

Participants can pose questions to the panel of UK and Canadian leaders in the AT sector. The Panel will provide a holistic and wide viewpoint of the capabilities identified during the Mission and will showcase key opportunities for UK and Canadian businesses who may be interested in international collaboration.

Participants can also request access, when registering, to our 1:1 partnering system to book meetings with other attendees. To create your online profile, please click here.
