Newsletter Listing intro for week 23

Welcome to this week’s Friday Brief.

London came alive over the long weekend. Strings of Union Jack bunting filled  the streets and thousands of people turned out along the Thames or came to the Mall to enjoy the Jubilee celebrations despite the gloomy weather.

Celebrating the technologies, tools and applications our members produce is also behind the MTA’s plan to take a British pavilion at next year’s IMTEX in Bangalore. If you would like to be part of this exhibition which attracted more than 92,500 visitors last year then you can find out more below.

As well as creating links on behalf of the UK’s advanced engineering sector both at home and abroad, the MTA also exists to share best practice and that’s why we are is organising a series of seminars for members over the coming months and the first one with Bloodhound SSC takes place this month. Pera Technology is also hosting several free breakfast seminars across the country this month focussed on funding and we invite all MTA members to sign up.   

Attracting great young minds into our industry is also something the MTA strives to do and after the success of the Education and Training zone at MACH 2012, we have been delighted to have received some astounding entries into our annual TDI Challenge.

Finally Geoff Noon, provides us with an economic overview for the week focussed on Eurostat GDP figures. And if you have not yet filled in the MTA Business Survey for May, there is still time.

TDI Challenge

TDI Challenge

The preliminary round of the TDI Challenge Awards took place last week with members of the Education & Training committee scoring applicants. We received a record number of entries, which made selecting the finalists tough, but after four hours the top six entries in each age group shone through, with a strong and varied range of 12 projects making it to the final.

Economic Data this Week

Economic Data this Week

European GDP, 1st Quarter 2012:  Data from Eurostat shows that GDP in both the euro-zone and the EU27 as a whole was at the same level as in the 4th quarter of 2011;  compared to a year earlier, GDP decreased by -0.1% in the euro-zone, but grew by +0.1% for the EU27.  This compares unfavourably with the US and Japan where GDP was up by +2.0% and +2.6% respectively.

Bloundhound SSC Seminar- June 26

Bloundhound SSC Seminar- June 26

Learning from the sharpest in the business is essential if you want your company to thrive and that’s why the MTA is launching a season of seminars. The first will focus on the Bloodhound SSC project and will take place on the morning of Tuesday June 26 at Coventry Transport Museum. The event will be a chance to find out more about the engineering opportunities that exist within the Bloodhound supply chain.

Speakers on the day will include:

Wing Commander Andy Green – SSC Driver
