KTN's online platform helps you to make the connections you need

 

The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) has refreshed its online platform to intelligently connect you to relevant events, funding, thought pieces and specialist staff to help your business innovate and grow.

You can discover content using your area of interest, from Defence Security to transport; from space to health – all major UK economic sectors are covered. Once you have selected your interests, using our intelligent tagging system, we will then display rich and relevant content related to your area, often from surprising sources.

An example might be new satellite technology from the space sector that is applicable in the agri-food sector. KTN-UK.co.uk will help you form these unusual and valuable connections.

All content on the platform has been carefully curated by our team of innovation specialists – not by an automated algorithm – so you can be confident that KTN is connecting you to the most relevant cutting-edge information.

 

The move also marks a closer alignment with our main funder, Innovate UK , with the website branding making a clear visual link. Knowledge Transfer Network is Innovate UK's innovation network partner, and also works with other funders to provide innovation networking services and fulfil our mission to drive UK growth.

We link new ideas and opportunities with expertise, markets and finance through our network of businesses, universities, funders and investors. From agri-food to autonomous systems and from energy to design, KTN combines expertise in all sectors with the ability to cross boundaries. Connecting with KTN can lead to potential partners, horizon-expanding events and innovation insights relevant to your needs.

Improving Peruvian Mobile Healthcare Facilities in Rural Areas

The Satellite Applications Catapult is hosting a workshop on 14th September with the aim of understanding technical challenges and potential enabling solutions which could improve Peruvian mobile healthcare facilities in rural areas.

 

About the workshop

The Satellite Applications Catapult is undertaking a project with Cayetano Heredia University in northern Peru to improve healthcare provision in the remote areas of the Amazonia, via enhanced connectivity for mobile healthcare facilities and combined with the use of e-Health and mobile Health (m-Health) solutions.

This project will analyse and research which technological gaps, including the use of UK technology, can better support patients and practitioners in the local Peruvian communities to improve the quality of, and access to, critical healthcare services. The project focuses predominately at maternal, newborn and child health, as well as tropical disease.

This workshop is addressed to the healthcare community including health professionals and practitioners, the technological providers interested in the eHealth and mHealth domains, as well as the telecommunications industry (terrestrial and satellite) to sustain the deployment of these services in remote areas. The workshop is designed to provide information on the Prosperity Fund project and partners, an introduction to these technologies and services, as well as to future opportunities in Peru and overview potential funding schemes.
