Funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation, the AIM-Bio Program brings together two academic universities, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and North Carolina State University, to create an international collaboration to drive innovation in research and education in manufacturing biopharmaceuticals. AIM-Bio held a very successful Annual Symposium on Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing from November 9-11, 2022 at NC State featuring distinguished speakers from its Biopharma Leaders Network.
Topics included continuing education, research, international exchange and time for networking with working groups. The overall goal of the symposium was to build new relationships with Danish industry and academic members that can serve as partners for future extensions of the AIM-Bio program. AIM-Bio leadership requested that KIETS support be applied in fiscal year 2022-23 towards support for international exchange students visiting NC State University from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). The funding will support onboarding by the Global Training Initiative (GTI) at NC State University. GTI onboarding support for the exchange students is invited through the end of the AIM-Bio program in December 2024. Sixteen student exchanges and 3 faculty/staff exchanges are in progress or completed
