Invitation to join the IET / HVMC 2017 Horizontal Innovation™ SME funding programme
8:00 – 10:00am Thursday, 25 May 2017 at AFRC, University of Strathclyde, Renfrew

It’s our very great pleasure to invite you to the launch of a rather special initiative.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVMC) will be announcing details of a major funding programme for UK SMEs.
This latest initiative follows the success of a pilot programme in 2016 involving the IET and the Manufacturing Technology Centre, one of HVMC’s seven centres, which attracted over 40 SME applications for healthcare solutions inspired by Horizontal Innovation™.

We would very much welcome your attendance and do hope you will be able to join us for a special breakfast presentation taking place on Thursday, 25 May 2017 at the Advance Forming Research Centre (AFRC), University of Strathclyde, Inchinnan, Renfrew, PA4 9LJ.

Registration will start at 7:30am with the event scheduled to start at 8:00am followed by Q&A and refreshments; the event will close at 10am.
  • Be among the first to hear about the seven sectors selected for 2017.
  • Hear from Professor Sam Turner, HVMC’s Chief Technology Officer talking about the prospects for this second, expanded tranche of funding, £50,000 for the selected application in each of the seven sectors.
  • Find out about the application process, the types of applications sought and the opportunities for SMEs.
I do hope you’ll be able to join us on Thursday, 25 May; to secure your place RSVP to at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely
