e2v set to use grant to grow its space-imaging business

Technology provider e2v has been awarded a £3.8m grant from the Regional Growth Fund that will support the company’s strategic plan for growth within its space-imaging business.

The grant is part of an overall investment of £13.5m.

The company intends to further advice its imaging technologies and move into the broader management and supply of imaging and control subsystems and solutions.

It is anticipated that the project will create 130 jobs at e2v and a further 30 jobs with e2v’s partners over the next three years, including at the Open University and Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
