It is to join forces with Cambridge Network to become the regional hub for the Eastern Region of the Electronics Knowledge Transfer Network (EKTN).
The EKTN is charged with establishing a network of companies in the electronics industry to facilitate best practice and a community rich with collaborative players.
The new relationship between the university, Cambridge Network and EKTN aims to establish a vibrant network of companies in pursuit of growth through innovation across North London, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Essex.
The network also plans to devise a fully searchable listing of UK electronics companies to promote knowledge transfer and networking and to establish regional and national programmes of events covering emerging technologies and good business practice relating to the electronics industry.
“The University of Hertfordshire is a model of a twenty-first university – business-facing and business-like approach. The university is building on its past success through an ambitious forward plan for 2007-2012 to deliver its vision.”
Ashley Evans, CEO EKTN added: “The Electronics Knowledge Transfer Network is absolutely delighted that the University of Hertfordshire and Cambridge Network are collaborating to deliver the regional EKTN for the East of England region.
Each region within the UK has very differing strengths, and we’re sure that the region will combine entrepreneurial flair with innovative electronic designs to create a vibrant regional network capable of delivering new product ideas into the market. This will be a great network in which to learn and gain inspiration. Companies involved in developing innovative products should get involved today!”

For the first time, physicists at the University of Basel have succeeded in measuring the magnetic properties of atomically thin van der Waals materials on the nanoscale. They used diamond quantum sensors to determine the strength of the magnetization of individual atomic layers of the material chromium triiodide. In addition, they found a long-sought explanation for the unusual magnetic properties of the material. The journal Science has published the findings.
The use of atomically thin, two-dimensional van der Waals materials promises innovations in numerous fields in science and technology. Scientists around the...
Flexible, organic and printed electronics conquer everyday life. The forecasts for growth promise increasing markets and opportunities for the industry. In Europe, top institutions and companies are engaged in research and further development of these technologies for tomorrow's markets and applications. However, access by SMEs is difficult. The European project SmartEEs - Smart Emerging Electronics Servicing works on the establishment of a European innovation network, which supports both the access to competences as well as the support of the enterprises with the assumption of innovations and the progress up to the commercialization.
It surrounds us and almost unconsciously accompanies us through everyday life - printed electronics. It starts with smart labels or RFID tags in clothing, we...
The human eye is particularly sensitive to green, but less sensitive to blue and red. Chemists led by Hubert Huppertz at the University of Innsbruck have now developed a new red phosphor whose light is well perceived by the eye. This increases the light yield of white LEDs by around one sixth, which can significantly improve the energy efficiency of lighting systems.
Light emitting diodes or LEDs are only able to produce light of a certain colour. However, white light can be created using different colour mixing processes.
Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.
Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...
