Training Programs for the Biologics and Biomedical-based Industry Sector

The project seeks to design and create training programs for industry associated with the R&D and advanced manufacturing of biologic medicines and more broadly for industry associated with biomedical sciences.

The training program fills a gap in the required knowledge and skills base necessary for advancement of Australian industry. At least 200 individuals will receive training on the R&D and advanced manufacturing of biologic medicines.

Outcomes (FY2020):

  • 490 participants receieved training during the project, this is a mixture of in-person training and access to an e-learning platform. 
  • One additional clinical trial has commenced from the trainees.
