Nigel Griffiths:

While membership of the Electronic Innovation and Growth Team (EIGT) Steering Board and Working Groups is by personal invitation, I am assured SMEs are well represented. Both the Steering Board and Working Groups have participants who are employed in or who are key participates in SME networks. The EIGT is acutely aware of the significance that SMEs play in the sector.
