What is UK doing?

Development of National Strategy for Materials

Advanced Materials - a key pillar in funding priorities

Materials UK - a representative body for all in Materials value network

Materials KTN – a key delivery channel for technology/knowledge transfer

tsb goals for ktns
TSB Goals for KTNs

To deliver improved industrial performance through innovation and new collaborations

by driving the flow of people, knowledge and experience between business and the science-base, between businesses and across sectors;

To drive knowledge transfer between the supply and demand sides of technology-enabled markets

through a high quality, easy to use service;

To facilitate innovation and knowledge transfer

by providing UK businesses with the opportunity to meet and network with individuals and organisations,

in the UK and internationally

To provide a forum for a coherent business voice to inform government of its technology needs

and about issues, such as regulation, which are enhancing or inhibiting innovation in the UK.

COMMENCED JAN 2006 – NATIONAL LAUNCH

  • CURRENT MEMBERSHIP – 6500 INDIVIDUALS/TARGET – 13000
  • ACTIVE MEMBERS – 1300 COMPANIES/TARGET – 4500
  • ORGANISED – 200 EVENTS TO DATE
  • DEVELOPMENT – PROJECTS - 80
slide13
Design/product development restricted by lack of materials understanding

New materials to provide new product opportunities

Materials for cleaner energy

Nuclear materials – know-how needs to rebuilt

Energy efficiency in transport, construction, power generation, especially in regard to light-weighting and insulation

Efficient design with (new) materials making use of sophisticated design optimisation

End of life, re-use, recycle, life cycle analysis

Manufacturing efficiency – energy, use of materials

Understanding nanomaterials and responsibly exploiting new opportunities

Materials for assisted living

Natural biomaterials

Materials for security – sensors, armour, defence systems

Use UK materials know-how to access to new, higher value markets

The Materials KTN is stimulating innovation in the

UK’s materials community by helping to address:

building the infrastructure for polymers
Partnership with the British Plastics Federation – 2nd phase of subcontract being negotiated

Polymer IRC on board as Partner – Foresight role: 5 workshops

Potential partnership with PERA –visit to Melton Mowbray on 9/11

RDA study conducted for KTN provided input to Strategy

Strategy paper approved by Board

Focus on Construction, Medical Devices and Waste/Recycling

Potential launch of Super SPARKS - £10K+, matched by RDA and Company

Promotion of the Polymer Innovation Network brand widely

New web portal launched www.polymerinnovate.net

Events ,Conferences, Exhibitions, TT visits to companies routine

3rd Newsletter issued
