“CIEL has been instrumental in supporting our business activities.”


“Working with CIEL, we have submitted funding calls, heard about new technologies and met other interesting businesses and academics that we wouldn’t have done otherwise. I’d recommend joining CIEL to any new business looking to do R&D and scale up quickly.” Martyn, DraperBIOTECH
