CiNTech: Polo Tecnológico de Inovação, Translação e Industrialização de Medicamentos Injetáveis Complexos

CiNTech Consortium intends to establish the 1st Technological Hub dedicated to the Innovation, Translation, and Industrialization of complex injectable drugs. By integrating research, scale up and GMP manufacturing activities in a hub and through the contribution of highly qualified scientific teams from the UC and INL, as well as the differentiated technical capabilities of SMEs and the expertise and track record of a well-established pharmaceutical company, CiNTech can present competitive advantages, at a business and innovation level, over other companies that act only as manufacturers.
CiNTech will foster not only innovation, generated in or captured in Portugal, but also reach new partners and customers (in a post-project phase), contributing to the increase in the export of tradable products, processes, and/or services of high technological intensity.

CiNTech comprises 7 Work Packages (WP) which include different projects: 

  • Projects for organizational innovation, digital transformation, and climate transition (WP2);
  • Innovation and technological projects (WP3, WP4, WP5);
  • Project for HR qualification (WP6);
  • Projects to coordinate the consortium, and promote and disseminate its results (WP1, WP7)
