Expressions of Interest required for Wearable technologies in Defence workshop

The Knowledge Transfer Network and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) are hosting a joint workshop on HMS Belfast on the 19th May to explore the challenges and opportunities involving 'Wearable Technology for Defence'. The day will look at where capabilities from other sectors such as policing and helathcare can be translated to and from defence.

The aim of the day is to bring together the technology developers the KTN has in its network, have them hear from military end-users about their challenges in context and also include talks from other sectors on where common challenges exist and where ideas can be trasnfered. The day will end with a discussion on how projects could be take forward and further steps (full agenda below).
