Science Program


PLEASE NOTE: Entries for the 2017 Shionogi Science Program are now OPEN.

Shionogi has a long history of building partnerships and collaborating with researchers in areas of interest and unmet medical need. As part of this wider goal, the Shionogi Science Program (SSP) was launched in the UK in 2011 following the success of the Japanese initiative FINDS (PHarma-INnovation Discovery competition Shionogi) which was founded in 2007.

The SSP is an industry-academic initiative which aims to provide support to researchers driven by the discovery of innovative ideas for drug development and technology. Shionogi’s presence in Europe is growing and in 2012 the SSP expanded to Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, with further expansion to France, Germany and Ireland in 2013, New Zealand in 2014 and Italy in 2015.

Entries for the 2017 programme are welcomed from Australia, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, New Zealand, the Netherlands and the UK

Shionogi recognises talent in Europe year on year and we look forward to receiving this year’s applications.
