Press release - Energy Generation and Supply Knowledge Transfer Network to be established

07 Jan 2009

PRESS RELEASE

 

TECHNOLOGY STRATEGY BOARD TO ESTABLISH ENERGY GENERATION AND SUPPLY KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER NETWORK   

The Technology Strategy Board is to establish a Knowledge Transfer Network to provide companies involved in the energy generation and supply sector with opportunities to network and set up partnerships, and has invited organisations to express an interest in participating in a workshop to help take this forward.

The Technology Strategy Board is seeking expressions of interest from organisations that have a successful track record in setting up, managing and delivering national networks and which have experience of knowledge transfer activities.

Commenting on the new Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), the Technology Strategy Board's Lead Technologist for Energy Generation and Supply, Filomena LaPorta, said: "The decision to establish this new network follows a recent review of the Knowledge Transfer Network programme.  This identified a couple of gaps in the KTN portfolio.  While a number of networks are active in parts of the energy innovation landscape, there is no dedicated network delivering knowledge exchange activity in energy generation and supply, which is a priority sector for the Technology Strategy Board."

"In filling this gap, we have to be mindful of networking activities already ongoing, and use this opportunity to build on existing networks and optimise synergies, avoiding duplication," she added, "furthermore, the coverage of the network will align with the priority areas identified by the Technology Strategy Board in its Energy Generation and Supply Strategy."

Further information about the proposed new network, and details of how to express an interest, can be found at: http://www.innovateuk.org/_assets/pdf/egs_ktnworkshop.pdf
