The Centre is supporting the SMAS National Manufacturing Conference

The Centre for Laser-based Production Processes and Heriot-Watt University is supporting the Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service's National Manufacturing Conference 2014 on Thursday 12 June at Dunblane Hydro.

Building on the success of 'Manufacturing: Driving Value for Scotland' held in March 2012, this major national event will once again bring together over 400 business leaders and key decision makers from Scottish manufacturing to celebrate a strong, robust and successful Scottish manufacturing sector.

The Centre is promoting its SME Seedcorn Funding that funds SMEs to work with the Centre on 2 week feasibility studies or pump-priming projects at no cost to themselves.  Each project will be awarded up to 2 weeks Researcher time with input from members of the Centre academic team to develop or test laser-based production processes that could benefit the SME involved.  Come and visit our stand at 'Manufacturing: Making a difference' on the 12 June to find out more.
