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 ICT 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.

Internships Expressions of Interest: seeking a partner for an Industrial Mathematics Internship
Internship projects currently seeking PhD students are in the areas of:

 

  • Selex Galileo (Edinburgh): To develop an image recovery algorithm using sparse data sets derived from 2D (passive) and 3D (active) single pixel cameras (SPC) or single point scanning systems.
  • Liberty Syndicates (London): To help implement Solvency II Internal Model Standards to meet the Lloyd’s (Regulator) Dry Run deadlines for 2010. Solvency II is a risk based framework for all insurers based in the EU which will harmonise standards across the EU. Firms will develop a Calculation Kernel (stochastic model / DFA) within an Internal Model structure.
  • Selex Galileo (Edinburgh): To undertake a fundamental mathematical study examining the topology of antenna radiation patterns with the objective of finding analytical low sidelobe distributions with given aperture geometry and dynamic range constraints.
  • Thales (Crawley): To extend the foundations for the information-theoretic based analysis of the performance limits of radar systems to allow the same rigour to be applied to a wider range of practical radar problems.
  • MBDA and Cambridge Correlators (Pontefract, West Yorkshire): To explore the possibilities of compact optical computers based on Fourier Power spectra correlation in unconventional fields of Computational Imaging, where the processing can compensate for the use of simple or sparse sensing to recover imagery at a quality, which would normally employ high resolution and high bandwidth imaging optics and detectors.
  • Thales (Crawley): A rigorous analysis of clutter mapping of radar trackers, and for each potential solution, to consider efficient strategies for computation on real systems. Scientific computing is also required.
  • Arm (Cambridge): Analysis of errors in next generation digital circuits including assisting to build suitable statistical error occurrence models, to develop a methodology for applying these models and to understand how those errors will be observed in the data set.
  • 5one (London): The prediction of the movement and substitution of sales from product to product when changes in assortment are made to a category within a grocery retailer using Bayesian probability.

 

If you are interested in partnering one of these projects, or have a suggestion for a new project, please contact Dr Vera Hazelwood.

Energy Systems Week, 24-27 May 2010, Cambridge
The Isaac Newton Institute is hosting an Energy Systems Week, 24-27 May 2010. The event is organised in association with the Newton Institute programme Stochastic Processes in Communication Systems, the Knowledge Transfer Network for Industrial Mathematics, and the Council for the Mathematical Sciences. This workshop will provide an introduction to current modelling challenges in power systems for the benefit of systems mathematicians. The week will begin with two days of technical tutorial talks from modelling experts already working in the field, followed by industrial problem-scoping and networking sessions.
