8 Driving Innovation Our Tools for Prioritisation and Delivery Published Technology Strategies –To communicate funding priorities and rationale eg: High Value Manufacturing Strategy (Sept 2008) –To provide clear, consistent focus for funding applicants Competitions – collaborative R&D projects eg: £24m High Value Mfg, launched January 2009 Additional funding mechanisms SBRI for R&D contracts (Government procurement) Large (>£5m) CR&D Projects, assessed on individual basis 8

9 Driving Innovation Our Investment (Assessment) criteria Can the UK do it? Is there a large market opportunity? Is the idea ready? Can the Technology Strategy Board make a difference? Model for success: a convincing yes to these 4 questions 9

10 Driving Innovation Manufacturing Strategy Working with Industry Working with Academia Working with Government Working together Developing a common understanding of challenges and opportunities Prioritising investment in key areas Publish Strategy, launch CR&D competitions 10

11 Driving Innovation Manufacturing Through Life Not just production Interfaces forwards and backwards HIGH VALUE MANUFACTURING Research Design & Development Production Sale Service Operation Decommission 11

12 Driving Innovation We are worlds 6 th largest manufacturer 12

13 Driving Innovation Products Production Processes Service Systems Value Systems The Four Pillars of the HVM Strategy The strategy includes key manufacturing activities that enhance competitive advantage in high wage economies; …and it recognises that large amounts of value-add and value- capture occur outside production – …and that technology may bring innovation in all areas. 13

14 Driving Innovation Prioritisation.. in areas of high growth + high R&D intensity Growth R&D Intensity 14

15 Driving Innovation High Value Manufacturing Competition The Step Change in Competitiveness / Value Systems Competition was launched in January 2009 and invited businesses in a broad range of industry sectors to form consortia and compete for funding. The aim was for companies to achieve major improvements of between 25% and 50% relative to their current performance in areas such as overall manufacturing costs, whole life-cycle costs, whole life environmental impact and product performance, durability and reliability. 15

Funding and timescales? What do we (TSB & BIS) do right? What could we improve on? Other contributions & feedback? 19

20 Driving Innovation SHIELD Summary: The aim of project SHIELD is to develop novel acetabular and femoral components that minimise bone resorption. This will be achieved through a combination of component design and material optimisation by which the load transfer from prosthesis to bone will attempt to mimic bone stress levels pre-operation. The objective is to develop an innovative solution to the problem of stress shielding in hip implants therefore increasing the efficacy of total hip prostheses by increased life span and a reduced need for revision surgery after failed implantation.

21 Driving Innovation BIOCHEMIST Title: Biocatalysis and Chemical Engineering for Manufacturing Intensification and Sustainability - BIOCHEMIST Summary: This project will integrate all phases of bioprocess development from catalyst discovery and engineering, to process design, through to highly efficient small footprint manufacture of high value products - enhancing the efficiency, sustainability and flexibility of chemical manufacture. The principle objectives of the project are (a) a novel compact reactor system for efficient continuous chemical manufacture, (b) advanced process design to accelerate introduction of new bio-manufacturing processes and products (c) new competitive bioprocesses to prepare unnatural amino acids and chiral amines. Partners: –C -Tech Innovation Ltd (lead), –Ashe Morris Ltd, –Ingenza Ltd. 21

22 Driving Innovation STEP Title: Scalable Technology for the Extraction of Pharmaceuticals - STEP Summary: We plan to develop small footprint, versatile, counter-current chromatography purification technology and methodology which can be operated at a range of scales in both batch and continuous modes and that can be inserted into existing process plant and systems. The consortium will address major production challenges aiming to provide a flexible, low capital capability driving substantial cost efficiency in both drug development and drug manufacturing processes. Partners: –GlaxoSmithKline Research and Development Ltd (lead) –Brunel University –Pfizer Limited –Dynamic Extractions Ltd. 22

23 Driving Innovation MANUFACTURE OF CELL THERAPIES Title: Advanced manufacturing process for the production of individualised cell therapies Summary: Individualised cell therapies ("ICTs") for the treatment of cancer, autoimmune disease, and infectious disease are progressing through regulatory approval for clinical use. ICTs are generally based on natural or genetically enhanced immune cells with disease-fighting applications and are therefore distinct from regenerative stem cell therapies. This project aims to achieve the first advanced cell manufacturing system (the "CellPro Manufacturing System") to support the routine clinical use of ICTs on a cost- effective and convenient basis. Partners: –Cell Medica Ltd (lead) –University College London, –eXmoor pharma concepts ltd. 23

24 Driving Innovation RAPIDPART Title: RapidPart - Significant Step Change in the Selective Laser Melting Powder Bed Process for the Manufacture of High Value Components Summary: RapidPart will deliver step change reductions in the manufacturing cost of laser powder bed deposition, or Selective Laser Melting (SLM), by significantly increasing the speed of the process. The targeted 500% increase in processing speed will enable this high value, flexible and environmentally-friendly process to become commercially viable for a more widespread range of applications, giving the UK a technical advantage and world lead in laser additive manufacture. Partners: –Weir Valves and Controls UK Ltd (lead) –TWI Ltd (Academic) –Thinklaser Limited, –MTT Technologies Ltd, –SPI Lasers UK Limited – Disenco Limited, –Materialise UK. 24

25 Driving Innovation HEPTACORE Title: Commercial manufacture of a novel dual hepatitis vaccine (Hepatacore) Summary: The aim of this project is the further development and commercial manufacture of a tandem-core technology (TCT) vaccine candidate, such that a clinical trial may be undertaken. TCT allows the insertion of at least two different viral antigens into a single highly immunogenic recombinant protein. This results in a vaccine which can deliver immunity to two viruses simultaneously within the confines of a single construct. This project intends to manufacture commercially a combined hepatitis A and B vaccine (HAV/HBV). Partners: –iQur Ltd –University College London –Mologic Ltd. 25
