    NAA Event: Ready for Electrification?, 22 May 2019, Daresbury

    Start date: 22/05/2019

    Are you interested in the UK Electric Vehicle (EV) sector? Are you a current automotive supplier? Do you have a relevant technology, process or product? Join us at The Hartree Centre to find out about the ‘Ready for Electrification’ Programme being run by The Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG)…

    The Programme seeks to support small to medium size businesses that are currently supplying or have an interest in supplying to the EV sector.

    The Ready for Electrification programme will:

    • Develop a UK supply base for the current and future EV market.
    • Offer practical and technical support to businesses.
    • Connect the whole supply chain from SME to OEM.
    • Help UK manufacturers to understand the challenges and get ready for them.

    This event will also be supported by The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) and is an event not to be missed if you want to be part of the emerging EV Supply Chain.
