Event details

The Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering is hosting an open day on 29 May 2024 for those interested in applying to the Clean Futures Accelerator.

The Clean Futures Accelerator, led by Connected Places Catapult, is leveraging Coventry University and the Black Country Innovative Manufacturing Organisation's world-class testing facilities and expertise. SMEs being supported on the Accelerator have access to an extensive range of facilities and academic expertise so they can forge new ways to improve systems and products related to development of clean tech for transport.

The event will highlight the facilities that are available and can be matched with potential projects via the accelerator programme, helping to achieve your project objectives. To accommodate various schedules, the event will feature two sessions, allowing for increased flexibility and the opportunity for more businesses to attend despite other commitments on the day.
