Breakfast Briefing - Innovation in Manufacturing – it's not immaterial
The UK economy has a strong base in high value manufacturing and
advanced materials and underpins sectors such as aerospace, automotive,
energy, transport and process industries. The University of Birmingham’s
research aligns closely to the needs of these business and reaches
across the manufacturing technologies, such as machining, additive
manufacturing, biomedical/biomaterials, automation & robotics,
modelling & simulation, materials processing & analysis, food
and consumer goods, rail, remanufacturing, nanotechnology, sensing,
microsystems and vehicle technology.
On Thursday 8 June, the University of Birmingham Business Club will
host a discussion on the state of UK innovation in manufacturing and
what role funding has in stimulating R&D in this sector.
With guest speakers Malcolm Harold, The Knowledge Transfer Network,
and Nick Haigh, Business Engagement Manager for AMCASH, a new SME
engagement project for supporting companies working in the materials
sector, this briefing aims to provide an overview of the support
available to businesses from both the University and Innovate UK.
