The University of Lincoln is holding a special event for local architecture and construction companies to provide information about opportunities for business development in collaboration with the university.


As part of the Innovation Festival in the East Midlands the Lincoln School of Architecture will be hosting the ‘opportunities for business development’ event on Thursday 29th March (tomorrow).


At the event there will be demonstrations of the university’s newest 3D modeling technologies such as 3D colour printing, rapid prototyping, 3D non-contact scanning, engraving and laser cutting.
