Good morning and welcome to this week’s Friday Brief.
The MTA organised Inter-Association Golf Day took place this week, now in its 59th year the competition was a hotly contested event and the MTA teams walked away with two of the trophies. Please see below for the full list of results.
In MACH 2016 news, the 3D Printing and Additive manufacturing Zone has launched with a host of companies already signing up. So far Creat3d, Laser Lines, Nabertherm, Photo Labs and Stratasys are already on the floorplan, and more are in the pipeline to exhibit.
Unfortunately we have to repeat our warning of several months ago about false, fraudulent, invoices circulating in relation to MACH 2016. If you are in any doubt at all please contact the MTA immediately, please call 020 7298 6400 or email Nicola Harrison at email@example.com.
The CBI have provided us with some briefing notes about the ongoing crisis in Greece to share with our membership, you can find full details within the Brief.
We have also started to examine the effect that Intellectual Property (whether management, protection or valuation) has on our membership and we would like to gage your opinion on this matter. We would ask that any members who are interested in helping us to contact Tom Lane (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Paul O’Donnell (email@example.com), so we can start to develop a tangible members benefit.
If you are a business based in Leeds City Region (more or less West Yorkshire) and want to develop the skills and expertise of your workforce Leeds City Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Skills Service can help by offering funding of up to £50,000. Details on eligibility are in the story.
