This presentation will give a background to the KTN and the services provided in connecting people, and in signposting through the complex field on innovation in UK and global healthcare. Two other important fields are access to finance and the wealth of public funding schemes available to support innovation. In addition, considerable support is given to innovation in many exciting areas of research that have been stimulated with the support of this KTN . These include; developments of new generation medical/biomaterials, medical devices and implants, new procedures in regenerative medicine and cell-based therapies, new devices for remote sensing, minimally invasive surgery, telemedicine and assisted living and applications of nanotechnology in medicine. Examples of some of the KTN initiated research projects, particularly those funded by the EPSRC allocated CASE Awards and TSB funded KTP schemes will be given. This presentation will also describe how the HT KTN has been working with research councils, particularly EPSRC , the Technology Strategy Board, the Department of Health and the NHS and other stakeholders to bring together many talented academics, clinicians and healthcare industry inventors to stimulate and accelerate new innovations.
