What is IMPULS?
Innovation in Manufacturers of Products Used in Life Sciences (IMPULS) was a project funded by the Interreg France-Channel-England (FCE) Programme which helped small Life Science and nutrition businesses from South East England and North West France to get into international markets.
IMPULS secured a €400,000 European Regional Development Fund grant from the Interreg FCE programme over its lifetime (April 2021 to March 2023) was delivered by Kent County Council as Lead Partner together with Eurasanté, Biotech Santé Bretagne and SEHTA.
