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.

Ontario delegation signs Israel technology deals

The visit is designed to strengthen cooperation between the two countries, with an emphasis on technology and the life sciences. Canada openly admires Israeli entrepreneurship and the "Startup Nation." Representatives from the delegation are expected to sign new agreements worth $87 million for developing joint technological ventures. The delegation also includes Ontario Minister of Research and Innovation Reza Moridi and Minister of Minister of Health and Long Term Care Eric Hoskins.

The visit was preceded by a trip to Ontario by an Israeli delegation of journalists, who met senior government officials and a series of representatives of the research and business community there. One of the representatives, Centre for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine (CCRM) president and CEO Michael May, said that his company developed advanced medical equipment, and was interested in developing a non-profit hub in Israel that would incorporate several cooperative efforts. "Our interest in Israel is the same as in any country with excellence," May explained. "Israel has a wonderful history in this field and many companies seeking to export to North America." Toronto General Hospital Vascular Surgery Division head Dr. Barry Rubin said that his hospital would be the first to adopt 3D holographic imaging technology developed by Israeli company RealView Imaging in invasive cardiac procedures.
