The UK-based composites trade body has announced a series of regional events that will highlight support opportunities for composites growth in the North West, East Midlands and Scotland.

Presentations are planned from European, national and regional bodies such as UKTI, European Enterprise Network, Scottish Enterprise, Knowledge Transfer Network, MAS, How2 and Utilitywise.

Planned events are as follows:

  • Scotland, 24 August 2015 at Scott and Fyfe, Dundee – Supported by Scottish Enterprise.
  • Scotland, 26 August 2015 at the University of Strathcylde – Supported by Scottish Enterprise.
  • North-West, 29 September 2015 at the University of Manchester – Supported by the National Composites Certification and Evaluation Facility (NCCEF).
  • East Midlands, 20 November 2015 at the University of Nottingham – Supported by Far Composites.

‘In order to support the growth of the composites industry it is important for us to highlight the regional support available to organisations to enable them to benefit from the opportunities on offer,’ said Claire Whysall, communications manager for Composites UK. ‘It is also critical to showcase regional expertise and strengthen local collaborative networks.’
