#hellodigital hosts ‘Digital Making Showcase Week’ 27 June - 01 July
An audience of around 60 of the north’s forestry professionals will gather in Forres this week to hear the results of a ground breaking technology project that optimises the value of timber on its journey from forest to sawmill.
A new report published today puts the spotlight on links between transport, the economy in Argyll and Bute and the potential for investment to support future population and economic growth.
A week long programme highlighting leading edge design and making technology is being held in Highlands and Islands Enterprise’s new digital demonstration centre - #hellodigital – from Monday.

The Government Economic Strategy (GES) identifies seven sectors as offering particular opportunities for growth due to existing comparative advantages or through potential to capitalise on Scotland's unique natural assets.
