The 2006 Annual Report for all Knowledge Transfer Networks (KTNs) has now been published. Malcolm Wicks, Minister of State for Science and Innovation, said,
"Knowledge Transfer Networks exist to play a vital role in making the necessary connections between the various components of the knowledge transfer system. The KTNs have the potential to replicate the knowledge transfer capabilities that have traditionally been the preserve of the largest companies in specific sectors. They can also add value to the innovation process by developing as well as transferring knowledge.
"The Technology Strategy Board remains strongly committed to listening to the needs and concerns of business and to giving it a voice within Government. The KTNs have a major role to play in this. The Technology Strategy Board is proactively taking a central role in guiding the development of KTNs to ensure that they provide both a vehicle for the wider business community to interact and develop ideas and build communications between business, the Science Base and Government.
"Already 15,000 people and organisations have registered with KTNs. There have been over 3,500 people and organisations involved in over 200 events in the last year alone and many KTNs have developed technology roadmaps to communicate their future needs beyond the usual communities. KTNs have also participated in the strategy consultation on the Key Technology Areas of the Technology Strategy."
