The Animal Cell Technology Industrial Platform (ACTIP)
ACTIP is an informal forum of European companies with significant activities in animal cell technology. See also ACTIP Information Paper. Its objectives include networking and following cutting-edge developments in research and production related to animal cell technology. Topics covered include the production of biopharmaceuticals, monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, gene therapy vectors and safety testing.
ACTIP’s members meet twice a year in a plenary meeting, hosted in the home-town of a member company. These meetings feature high-level presentations on selected topics, with invited speakers from academia, our own member companies and small and medium-sized companies (SMEs). In addition to our meetings, we prepare position papers, monographs, information on products and a regular newsbulletin (see library page).
