TWI has been nominated for a ‘British Made Award’ courtesy of SME News because of our work as part of the Tees Valley Innovation Accelerator (TIA) project.
TIA was established to help companies drive innovation and produce new products, process and services.
Funded by the European Regional Development Fund in the Northern Powerhouse Region and led by TWI Middlesbrough (based in the Teesside Advanced Manufacturing Park, TeesAMP) and Teesside University, TIA provides fully funded support to any small and medium sized enterprise (SME) in the Tees Valley.
The EU states that small or medium sized businesses (SMEs) are those with fewer than 250 employees and a turnover of under €50 million.
Originally launched in 2017, this will be the second SME News Awards highlighting and rewarding businesses working in various regions and industries, whether finding new uses for technology and data or creating innovative new services and products.
SME News is a quarterly publication aimed owners and those who are involved in running or assisting SMEs across the UK.
We are pleased to have been recognised for our work with a nomination for this year’s SME awards.
