Transport iNet are to hold a half day event at the University of Sheffield’s AMRC (Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre) with Boeing.
The Transport iNet, provides support to SME’s with their innovation activities, helping them to focus on activities which they feel could contribute to the sustained growth of their business. The support comes in the form of funding, supply chain brokerage, and helping to form collaborative links with universities and other knowledge bases.
This event will be located within the Knowledge Transfer Centre, which opened early in 2012, and is aimed at SME’s based in the East Midlands who supply into the Transport equipment sector. During the event, there will be an opportunity to hear the experiences of several SME’s who have benefited from working either with the Transport iNet or the AMRC, and who wish to share how these links and other activities have contributed to the growth and development of their businesses. Speakers will be Paul Goodwin of Laser Cladding Technology, Martin Filleul of Tinsley Bridge Ltd and Marcus Jenkins of Magtec Ltd.
There will also be the opportunity have a tour of the facilities (limited in number), to network and to talk to a representative of Transport iNet to discuss their innovation aspirations and needs.
By attending this event, companies can learn about experiences and capabilities which will catalyse their own innovation activities and help them move forward. For more information, and to register for this FREE event, please click here.
