The CSIR Biomanufacturing Industry Development (BIDC) Programme supports small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) to translate research into market-ready products. An agile approach to product development has been adopted to meet customer requirements and to significantly reduce the time and cost of product development. The agile approach has been applied with two spin-out companies from the CSIR and is now realising value in product development for 12 SMMEs in the BIDC Programme.
