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.

Technology and Innovation in Care Homes: The SEHTA Review

SEHTA have announced that its 'Technology and Innovation in Care Homes: The SEHTA Review' has been published and will be released at the Care Showcase, taking place on 9th March 2016 at Brighton Racecourse. The Care Showcase is in association with Surrey Care Association, East Sussex County Council, West Sussex Council and Brighton & Hove City Council. For more information about the Care Showcase, please click here.

The greater use of ICT has for many years been proposed as a way of helping care homes provide high-quality services and improve their sustainability. Over this same period, SEHTA has been bringing care providers and technology suppliers together to help create sustainable ventures from its vantage point of independence from both. Coming from this background, this Review analyses the changing care environment and its impact on care homes and, from the large number of pilot projects and trials, identifies what will make a difference to a care home. The Review describes the process that SEHTA has developed for eliciting requirements and selecting solutions through a rigorous analysis of care home needs and thorough analysis of the costs and benefits for implementing technologies to meet those needs. 

Dr David Parry, CEO, SEHTA said; “This Review combines the wealth of knowledge and expertise that SEHTA has about the pressures and problems faced by care homes with its thorough awareness of the technological solutions available on the market. Our unique understanding will help care and nursing homes understand how technology can bring longer term sustainability and growth to their businesses”.
