Machine Tool Innovation Awards Announced

CECIMO has announce that the first edition of the Machine Tools Innovation (MTI) Awards will take place in December 2023. EIT Manufacturing, EFFRA and ERT are the official partners of the MTI Awards. The awards represent an incredible opportunity to recognise and celebrate the innovative and impactful work being done in the machine tool industry. The aim of MTI Awards is to highlight the significant contributions of any European actors in the machine tool industry and showcase best practices that can provide that edge — boosting productivity, growth and profitability. The most notable projects will be chosen by a group of experts.
