Medimap: End-to-end medicines supply chain map
Medimap is a new interactive reference tool for the UK medicines sector, mapping and categorising over 3,000 sites of organisations engaged in or supporting the end-to-end supply chain for medicines.
About KTN’s Medimap
KTN’s Medimap provides a dynamic representation of the UK’s end-to-end medicines supply chain covering organisations involved in the discovery, development and manufacture of medicines, as well as those supporting the sector.
The interface presents different views of the UK landscape which can help identify the opportunities for collaboration to accelerate ambitious ideas into real-world solutions. Users can explore the organisations belonging to different groups, categories and sub-categories.
The map represents a large subset of relevant UK organisations that KTN are aware of and have an active website. Please contact KTN if you would like to understand how we can help you accelerate your innovations, and also with queries about this tool, and suggestions on how this resource could be improved. We welcome your thoughts, including any omissions, corrections or ways of expanding the content in the future.
