Weltec and IRL cozy up in innovative move
By Peter Kerr for sticK
(sticK - 16 August 2011 ) More good stirring of the innovation system in Wellington, with a fair potential for much of central New Zealand to benefit as a result.
Weltec's Smart Product Centre has co-located, and as well as its Petone base camp, has set up alongside Industrial Research's Gracefield campus.
One of the Smart Product Centre's main foci is helping manufacturing companies develop prototypes, and small pilot runs.
For sticK – science, technology, innovation & commercialisation KNOWLEDGE - is a new Wellington based news service concentrating on following the money from ideas to income. Contact editor Peter Kerr at peter.kerr055 @ gmail.com
