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!”

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have come up with a striking new addition to contact stamping technologies in the ERDF research project ScanCut. In collaboration with industry partners from North Rhine-Westphalia, the Aachen-based team of researchers developed a hybrid manufacturing process for the laser cutting of thin-walled metal strips. This new process makes it possible to fabricate even the tiniest details of contact parts in an eco-friendly, high-precision and efficient manner.
Plug connectors are tiny and, at first glance, unremarkable – yet modern vehicles would be unable to function without them. Several thousand plug connectors...
An international research team has found a new approach that may be able to reduce bone loss in osteoporosis and maintain bone health.
Osteoporosis is the most common age-related bone disease which affects hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide. It is estimated that one in three women...

“Core-shell” clusters pave the way for new efficient nanomaterials that make catalysts, magnetic and laser sensors or measuring devices for detecting electromagnetic radiation more efficient.
Whether in innovative high-tech materials, more powerful computer chips, pharmaceuticals or in the field of renewable energies, nanoparticles – smallest...
An international research team with Prof. Cornelia Denz from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Münster develop for the first time light fields using caustics that do not change during propagation. With the new method, the physicists cleverly exploit light structures that can be seen in rainbows or when light is transmitted through drinking glasses.
Modern applications as high resolution microsopy or micro- or nanoscale material processing require customized laser beams that do not change during...
