Call for ACTIP Fellowship Award Applications 2022-2023

The Animal Cell Technology Industrial Platform (ACTIP) is a science-based association of European companies employing animal cell technology in the development and production of biopharmaceuticals, vaccines and other preventative or therapeutic approaches (www.actip.org).

The Fellowship Award consists of all costs paid to attend a two-day ACTIP meeting. The ACTIP Fellowships for 2022-2023 will be awarded to young scientists following an evaluation of their applications by experts within the member companies. The awarded fellows will be invited to attend one of the ACTIP meetings taking place from Spring 2022 to Fall 2023. In order to be selected for such an opportunity, ACTIP invites you to submit an application. Applications can be sent in from 7 June until 3 September 2021 (24:00 CET). Selected fellows will be notified via email by end of October 2021 at the latest. A shortlist of awarded fellows and their project will be published on the ACTIP website.

BioProNET is ending – stay in touch

BioProNET was granted a no-cost extension by the BBSRC to run until the end of August 2019. We have been investigating mechanisms by which to sustain the network beyond August 2019, and in particular to hold a Science Meeting in 2020.

Due to data protection rules, we are not allowed to use our BioProNET mailing list once funding for the network has finished.

Thank you for clicking on the link in an email that was sent to you indicate that you would like to stay in touch and be kept informed of a future bioprocessing network. Your preference has been noted.

If you arrived at this page not through an email link but would like to stay in touch please contact Jo Joanne.flannelly@manchester.ac.uk
