Get into Automotive

Posted on behalf of North East Automotive Alliance

Attend our Get into Automotive event to find out more about the ERDF funded £6.5m Supply Chain North East programme working across the Automotive sector as well as Advanced Manufacturing, Chemicals & Pharma, Digital, tech and creative, Health & Lifesciences, Subsea, offshore and energy. 


Get into Automotive is aimed at SME's within the North East LEP area who do not currently supply in the automotive sector and want to learn more about the opportunities within the industry. 


The aim of the event is to:


  • Help North East SME’s take advantage of the growing automotive sector and its value to the UK economy

  • Alert companies to future opportunities

  • Highlight standards / entry requirements

  • Outline how the NEAA is supporting the development of a dynamic, forward looking and competitive supply chain

  • Provide a networking opportunity to North East companies who are looking to enter the automotive supply chain


*This event is open to delegates wanting to join the Supply Chain North East programme. All registrants are giving authorisation for their details to be added to the enquiries list. We anticipate a high level of interest for this event so places are limited to ONE per company.
