Whilst they may appear different in their outcomes, they are both enabled by the adoption of collaborative and digital first approaches to leadership that require engagement with and understanding of the solutions that the tech community can provide.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> </div> <div> <p>So what does a collaborative, digital-first approach mean? These are more than just buzzwords, and when applied correctly in a local authority context, have the potential to deliver tangible benefits to public service delivery and the implementation of smart city and community initiatives. Local government has a role to play in creating the culture and infrastructure for &lsquo;smart places and communities&rsquo; to gain traction.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> </div> <div> <p>This begins with an understanding of digital as more than just shiny new technology. It is important that digitally-enabled solutions also integrate a collaborative and user-centric approach to doing things both smarter and differently. A truly smart place will be more connected to its citizens, communities and businesses, with the whole community reaping the benefits.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> </div> <div> <p>At this event we will be exploring the synergies between smart places and digital transformation, and&nbsp;launching our new report on &ldquo;What makes a &lsquo;Good&rsquo; Digital Board?&rdquo;, which explores how local authorities can draw upon the expertise and knowledge from local tech players to lead local authorities through an ever-evolving technology landscape.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> </div> <div> <p>This joint event between&nbsp;the Local Government and SmarterUK programmes will be an opportunity to bring together stakeholders and industry members from across the smart cities and transformation agenda to discuss how we can better collaborate and put in place the conditions that will create places where citizens want to live, work and thrive.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> </div> <div> <p>Registration is at 14.30 and drinks and networking from 17.00</p> <p>Speakers Confirmed include:</p> <ul><li> <p>Nathan Pierce,&nbsp;Head of Smart London Team &amp;&nbsp;Programme Director of Sharing Cities, <strong>Greater London Authority</strong></p> </li> <li> <p>Jen Hawes-Hewitt, Global Cities - Consulting and UK Lead, <strong>Accenture</strong></p> </li> <li> <p>Kulveer Ranger, Vice-President, Strategy &amp; Communications,&nbsp;<strong>Atos&nbsp;UK</strong></p> </li> <li> <p>Councillor Stephen Canning, <strong>Essex County Council</strong></p> </li> </ul></div>Contact: <a href="mailto:Jessica.Russell@techuk.org">Jessica.Russell@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:georgina.maratheftis@techuk.org">georgina.maratheftis@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/13741-empowering-the-patient-digital-medicines Empowering the patient: digital medicines http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/13741-empowering-the-patient-digital-medicines Thu, 16 Aug 2018 15:07:32 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org How do we support the patient to take greater control of their medicines management and adherence? <p>The agenda for medicines safety is growing, with a strong focus on reducing medication errors and avoiding medicines related hospital admissions.

In Defence, we have recently seen a renewed focus from senior leaders including VCDS and CGS on the future importance of information warfare and capability, which re-inforces that cyber skills will be increasingly important in all areas of the military. This techUK Information Superiority Council Briefing will be an opportunity to discuss the challenges facing UK defence in ensuring its workforce has sufficient cyber skills, examining the shared cross industry challenges as well as those areas where Defence has unique challenges.</p> <p>One key issue to be discussed will be how the military can best utilise civilian expertise, in the same way that 77 Brigade has pioneered using a mixture of regulars and reservists. Using innovative career pathways like this and secondee programmes are a good way of bringing skills into MOD. Upskilling current service people will also be a topic for discussion, particularly in terms of raising awareness of cyber threats and ensuring sufficient cyber hygiene is practiced throughout all functions. The MOD already has &pound;120 million set aside for recruitment in this area so another area for discussion will focus around how MOD can better market the uniquely challenging roles it has, which can&rsquo;t be found in the private sector.</p> <p>We are delighted that the following speakers have confirmed their&nbsp;participation:</p> <ul><li><strong>Air Cdre Tim Neal-Hopes</strong>, Head Joint User C4ISR &amp; Cyber, MOD</li> <li>Speaker confirmed from <strong>BT.</strong></li> <li><strong>Steve Treharne</strong>, Director, Warner McCall Resilience</li> </ul><p>Further speakers from Government and industry will be confirmed in due course.</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:talal.rajab@techuk.org">talal.rajab@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:dan.patefield@techuk.org">dan.patefield@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:fred.sugden@techuk.org">fred.sugden@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/13337-women-in-defence-technology Women in Defence Technology http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/13337-women-in-defence-technology Fri, 15 Jun 2018 11:17:52 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org techUK Defence Event focusing on opportunities and challenges for Women in Defence Technology. <p>MOD continues to work towards a more inclusive and diverse workforce&nbsp; throughout UK Defence, and this event will provide a platform for women with technology skills to build relationships and discuss career pathways.

The Maritime Underwater Future Capability (MUFC) project has been established to assess future capability requirements and develop options to perform operations and tasks within the underwater environment when the current Astute Class Submarines leave service.</p> <p>2. The MUFC project moved into Initial Concept Phase earlier in 2018 and, as part of this work, is seeking to expand its involvement with Industry, at all levels, in exploring new and potentially radical technological, operational and commercial solutions to the challenges facing the MOD. In the face of sometimes rapid technical, military and environmental changes, these challenges include, but are not limited to:</p> <p>a) Exploitation of the underwater environment, including the challenges and opportunities of underwater detection and communication;</p> <p>b) Improving availability, flexibility, affordability and supportability of capability solutions;</p> <p>c) Optimising the time taken from concept phase through design and to manufacture of solution;</p> <p>3. Although the current capability solutions are delivered by submarine platforms, no decisions have yet been taken on what the future capability requirements will be nor the solutions composition. The MUFC Project Team are keen to explore a wider set of potential solutions for example, alternative platforms and systems, including organic off-board sensors carried (hosted) by a manned submarine or surface ship, vehicles that are independent (autonomous) and/or deployed from manned surface and air platforms.</p> <p>4. As well as these capability-based challenges, we are open to exploring different approaches to supplier engagement and supply chain sustainability, optimisation and capability. As part of this intent, the MUFC Project Team are hosting an Industry Day attended by senior personnel from the Defence Nuclear Organisation and Submarine Delivery Agency.</p> <p>5. Expressions of interest in this event are now sought from companies wishing to attend. Attendees will be invited to consider in advance how you might be able to help meet these unique challenges and support the MUFC Project Team in delivering this capability solution, either differently and/or better than we have in the past. There may be the opportunity for further engagement following the Industry Day.
