UK SMEs establish connections in Canada for future collaboration
20 UK SMEs from the advanced manufacturing sector recently took part in Innovate UK’s Global Business Accelerator Programme (GBAP) to Canada, delivered by Enterprise Europe Networks.
The aims of the visit were to develop technical and commercial collaborations with Canadian innovators in the advanced manufacturing sector with a view to developing the manufacturing technologies of the future.
The 4-day programme in Toronto and Winnipeg offered unique insights into the advanced manufacturing sector, whilst introducing the delegation to potential strategic partners.
