Everything the aerospace industry needs to know about technology, grants and advice

The West of England Aerospace Forum (WEAF) today announces two events, one enabling engineering companies to showcase their technological capabilities; the second is the “Grants and Funding One-Stop Shop”, which will cover everything the industry needs to know about grants and funding.

The Technology Showcase takes place on the 8th of November at the Westlands Conference Centre. Delegates will hear at first-hand the latest innovations from Leonardo Helicopters, Artemis Optical, Theta Technologies, Tods Aerospace, Rolls-Royce and GE Aviation.

The “Grants and Funding One-Stop Shop” takes place on the 17th of January in Bridgwater.  Leaders from the financial services industry specialising in aerospace will explain which grants, funding streams, advice and support are available, and how best to access them. This is a ‘must-attend’ event if your company wants to take advantage of external funding for operations and growth!

Adrian Harding, WEAF’s supply chain manager said: “These events are designed with small and medium-sized companies in mind. If you’d like to explore innovation in a friendly and collaborative environment, or if you’d like financial and advisory support for your business, then sign up as places are in high demand.”

The events are open to both WEAF members and non-members, and will be of interest to any engineering SME in the UK. For more information or to register for your place, visit  http://www.weaf.co.uk/networking-events/.
