The multi-national delegation included visitors from the UK, Italy, China, Korea, Germany, Canada, Japan, USA, India, France and Spain. During the visit, everybody took part in a privileged tour of MIRA’s Control Centre building and proving ground, visited an electromagnetic compatibility laboratory and a climatic wind tunnel, as well as meeting some of MIRA’s future transport technology experts and viewing a thermal imaging demonstration.
Commenting on the visit, Terry Spall, Commercial Director, MIRA Technology Park, said: “We were delighted to host this tour, it was a perfect opportunity for us to showcase MIRA and the Technology Park to these front line officers of UKTI. It was a pleasure to update the delegates on recent developments and show them our laboratories, extensive proving ground and research and technology projects”.
MIRA was granted Enterprise Zone status in August 2011. Since that time MIRA Technology Park has created over 200 jobs, with the development on target to deliver 2,000 jobs in ten years.
