IMAGE event at Cranfield University

Small and medium-sized businesses across the SEMLEP (South-East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership) area are being invited to a showcase event at Cranfield University on 4 December 2017.

The showcase will enable local businesses to learn how they can access some of the many world-class research facilities at the University and engage leading academic expertise, through the IMAGE (Innovation in Manufacturing, Aerospace and Green Economy) project.

IMAGE funding is available to support small and medium-sized businesses to develop new technologies, processes and services. Also, it is available to help business to enhance their ‘green business’ credentials.

Funding available

IMAGE is led by Cranfield University, and the funding is from the European Regional Development Fund.

IMAGE Project Manager at Cranfield University, Sandra Turner, said:

“Our message to local businesses is come and talk to us and view the research facilities on offer, particularly if you have a product idea you want to develop or are looking for advice on how to grow your business.”


Local businesses wishing to register their attendance at the event can do so here.
