News: Rotherham biomedical supply chain conference


Companies in the advanced engineering and materials sectors are being invited to take part in a Biomedical Supply Chain Roadmapping event, which is planned to take place at Swinden House, Rotherham on March 9.

The free event has been organised by Advanced Engineering and Materials (AEM) Yorkshire's Innovation Network, and is open to both members and non members.

The conference will bring together delegates from a wide range of companies working in the biomedical sector to discuss current and future technology hotspots and the potential problems they create for suppliers. The aim is then to set up consortia of company representatives to address these issues and remove potential barriers to trading in this lucrative marketplace.

Keynote speakers include Dr Alan McLelland, Director of AEM Yorkshire and Dr Alan Smith, Managing Director of AZ-TECH. Dr Smith is an expert on nanotechnology and advises several governments on the subject. He has also facilitated more than 50 technology roadmaps in a variety of sectors for establishments around the world.

Dr Alan McLelland explains: "The AEM Innovation Network is a framework for businesses of all sizes to identify up-and-coming opportunities and to form collaborative working groups to develop mutually beneficial technology-based solutions.

"Through this event, we plan to establish what are the most pressing issues facing companies involved in the biomedical supply chain, or those who aim to join this market and then bring together industry experts to address these challenges."

Organised by NAMTEC in Rotherham, the Innovation Network is aimed at companies and agencies involved in research and development and covers the applications of metals, polymers, glasses and ceramics within a number of sectors, together with their supply chains.
