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/meeting/item/12835-data-centres-risk-radar-save-the-date Data Centres Risk Radar **Save the Date** http://www.techuk.org/events/meeting/item/12835-data-centres-risk-radar-save-the-date Tue, 17 Apr 2018 08:54:35 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Risk Radar <p>Registration from 5pm.

By 2040, one in 7 people in the UK will be aged over 75. The figures show the UK&rsquo;s population is getting an older. The challenge an ageing population places on public services is well publicised, but this challenge also brings an opportunity for industry, researchers and the public sector to better work together to support our ageing population live longer, healthier and happier lives. Digital technology is a major contributor to helping achieve these goals by allowing for greater monitoring and earlier diagnosis of health conditions as well as helping to energise behavioral change.</p> <p>As such, techUK has been working with some of the organisations who are in the frontline of the challenges that our ageing society poses - <strong>HACT, the Health Innovation Network (South London Academic Health Science Network), the Local Government Association (LGA), Socitm, Suffolk Council and others</strong> - to come up with problem statements that industry and public service leaders from across housing, local government and health can workshop through solutions&nbsp;together on the day.</p> <p><strong><u>What will the day entail..</u></strong></p> <p>It will be an interactive session with delegates working in groups reviewing challenges that cut across social isolation; falls and prevention; physical activity to cultural changes. Attendees will review the problem statements and together explore potential solutions and what new products and services will help people to live in their homes for longer, tackle loneliness, and increase independence and wellbeing.</p> <p>The session will offer industry the opportunity to hear first-hand from practitioners the challenges posed by an ageing society to better shape their products/services; and network with individuals across the social care eco-system.</p> <p>We look forward to hearing from attendees on the day about their innovations and will use the outcome of the session to inform future activity in this area. techUK will be circulating the problem statements in advance of the session so attendees will have enough time to review and come prepared with their ideas.</p> <p><strong>Agenda</strong></p> <p>09:30&nbsp;Registration &amp; Networking</p> <p>10:00 - 10:30 Introductory presentations</p> <p style="margin-left: 120px;">Welcome, techUK</p> <p style="margin-left: 120px;">Hazel Harper,&nbsp;lead for the Industry Strategy Challenge Fund Healthy Ageing Programme at Innovate UK: Joining up the conversation with the&nbsp;Healthy Ageing Challenge</p> <p style="margin-left: 120px;">Outline of problem statements by the HIN, HACT and LGA</p> <p>10:30 - 11:30 Challenge workshop - round 1</p> <p>11:30 - 11:45 Tea break</p> <p>11:45 - 12:45 Challenge workshop - round 2</p> <p>12:45 - 13:00 Closing remarks and next steps</p> <p><strong>*Problem&nbsp;statements to follow</strong>*</p> <p>This event is open to techUK members and the public sector.

They use vast amounts of hardware, rely on complex software, and are physically distributed over land, underwater, and in orbit. They increasingly provide essential services that underpin almost every aspect of life.

Are the network operators and providers aware of how the very latest developments in AI may provide solutions? The conference will aim to bridge the gap between AI/ML and communications network communities, making each more aware of the nature and scale of the problems and the potential solutions.</p> <p>This one day conference, held at the University of Cambridge Computer Lab on September 27th&nbsp;2018, is aimed at data scientists and network engineers in universities, infrastructure suppliers, and software providers.</p> <p>The annual CW TEC provides a vibrant and dynamic form for harnessing knowledge, driving lively debate and networking at a senior level. It offers a more low-level, technical and focused agenda than the International Conference, exploring an emerging problem space that the CW community has highlighted as being particularly worthy of debate. Past event topics have included quantum computing and the impact on spectral value of mobile, satellite, TV, IoT and wearable technologies.

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/meeting/item/12842-trade-and-customs-compliance-group-meeting Trade and Customs Compliance Group meeting http://www.techuk.org/events/meeting/item/12842-trade-and-customs-compliance-group-meeting Tue, 17 Apr 2018 09:17:39 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org The Trade & Customs Compliance Group is the policy work forum on export controls, dual-use, defence exports, customs and the rules around international trade. <p>Our next&nbsp;<a href="http://www.techuk.org/focus/programmes/environment-compliance/groups/trade-customs-compliance-group" target="_blank">Trade and Customs Compliance Group</a>&nbsp;meeting will take place on on 27 September 2018.</p> <p>At this next quarterly meeting we will continue to focus discussion on concerns related to International Trade, following the decision to exit the EU, as well as updates on licencing and SPIRE/LITE development.</p> <p><strong>For more information, please contact:</strong></p>Contact: <a href="mailto:lucas.banach@techuk.org">lucas.banach@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:craig.melson@techuk.org">craig.melson@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/conference/item/13937-techuk-conference-call-dcms-secure-by-design-project techUK Conference Call | DCMS Secure by Design Project http://www.techuk.org/events/conference/item/13937-techuk-conference-call-dcms-secure-by-design-project Mon, 17 Sep 2018 15:39:38 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org techUK Conference call to discuss DCMS Secure by Design Project in advance of publication <p><strong>Dial in:</strong>&nbsp;033 0336 1373&nbsp;<strong>Pin:</strong> 217540<br><br><span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="techUK" data-wsc-lang="en_US">techUK</span> has been involved in <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="DCMS" data-wsc-lang="en_US">DCMS</span>&rsquo; <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/secure-by-design" target="_blank" rel="link" data-cke-saved-href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/secure-by-design">Secure by Design</a> project since its inception.

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.

Digital connectivity is an essential, though often overlooked part of this work and many are unaware how it can transform this sector. The option for a 5G network can open up fresh opportunities for the development and delivery of health care systems across the UK. From remote patient monitoring and using real-time data in urgent responses for diagnostic conditions to VR/AR capabilities for staff training purposes.</p> <p>The Government emphasises in its <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-digital-strategy/1-connectivity-building-world-class-digital-infrastructure-for-the-uk">Digital Strategy</a> the importance of building a world-class digital infrastructure for the UK.

They achieve this by identifying and assessing the operational resilience to potential new risks, and where a vulnerability exists, work to build HMPPS resilience to the prioritised risks before they materialise across the estate. One mechanism to identify and build operational resilience to emerging security risks is through early engagement with industry. This roundtable is a chance for HMPPS to engage with industry experts to explore what emerging technology might pose a risk to prison security in the future and what steps they might need to take to mitigate against those risks.<br><br> So if you&rsquo;re looking at emerging tech and have thoughts on how it might impact prison security, as well as have ideas about how to address these issues, come along!</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:henry.rex@techuk.org">henry.rex@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/13634-future-trends-opportunities-challenges-facing-local-gov Future Trends, Opportunities & Challenges Facing Local Gov http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/13634-future-trends-opportunities-challenges-facing-local-gov Mon, 06 Aug 2018 09:37:38 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Find out the latest trends, challenges and opportunities in the local Government tech market <p>We are delighted to host another local government tech analyst briefing, following the demand and success of our last session.</p> <p>Attend to hear from leading local Government analysts and council leaders their expert views on what they see as the future trends and opportunities facing local Government and the role tech will play.

Globally the space industry is undergoing a revolution (&ldquo;New Space&rdquo;) with new technologies enabling new business models, and a transition from being overwhelmingly publicly funded to private, and from principally serving public customers to private ones.</p> <p>Commercial space activity already comprises about three quarters of the total global space economy, but modern commercial investment models demand with much faster concept to service delivery timelines, and lower cost. This is being achieved with new production techniques, influenced by other sectors, deploying smaller satellites enabled by new technologies, and the widespread adoption of commercial off-the-shelf components (COTS).</p> <p>This has created a demand for lower cost launch systems, optimised for small satellites (which the UK space sector is disproportionally good at), which has resulted in the UK&rsquo;s Government&rsquo;s recent announcement of a location in Scotland for a spaceport for vertical launch.</p> <p>But cost-effectively designing, building and launching satellites is only part of the New Space challenge &ndash; the Ground Segment also needs to be fit for purpose. The requirements for Telemetry, Tracking and Command (TT&amp;C) systems may be very different when a small satellite has a value of $1-2 million, and could be replaced relatively quickly, from that supporting a traditional commercial satellite with a value of $100-500 million, which would take years to replace. Additionally user antennas may also look rather different if they are continually having to re-acquire connections from amongst thousands of small satellites in a constellation, each taking about 90 minutes to circle the Earth, by comparison to an antenna focussed on a traditional satellite in a geostationary orbit - plus, if every other element of a constellation has to be (relatively) low cost, these new antennas will have to be too.</p> <p>The opportunities for getting New Space right are enormous, as lower cost, lower latency, quicker-to-market satellites will open up new commercial applications. But this requires each element to deliver - technically, on time, and to cost.</p> <p>This conference - organised by techUK, the IET and the KTN - will explore new developments, and remaining obstacles, to enabling New Space &ndash; both in the Space Segment and the Ground Segment &ndash; with speakers representing companies from across the market.</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:julian.mcgougan@techuk.org">julian.mcgougan@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/opportunity/item/13690-technology-mission-to-singapore-and-malaysia Technology mission to Singapore and Malaysia http://www.techuk.org/events/opportunity/item/13690-technology-mission-to-singapore-and-malaysia Fri, 10 Aug 2018 11:20:07 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Join DIT at the Technology Mission 2018 <p>The UK&rsquo;s Department for International Trade invites you to register interest for the Technology Missions to Singapore and Malaysia from 22 &ndash; 25 October 2018.

The adoption of cloud technology provides an opportunity to address a number of these issues &ndash; providing flexibility and agility, enabling new data-rich services, increasing efficiency and cutting costs.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Despite cloud being a major part of today&rsquo;s digital agenda, <a href="https://www.pwc.co.uk/financial-services/assets/clouds-in-the-forecast.pdf" target="_blank">financial services (FS) organisations have in the past struggled to keep pace with the adoption of cloud computing</a>&nbsp;and there remains a number of perceived barriers holding back wide scale adoption.

A recent PWC report highlighted that increased drone adoption across the economy could increase UK GDP by &pound;42 billion (or 2%) by 2030.</p> <p>The market for drones is rapidly developing with new user cases emerging all the time. Of all the various user cases, perhaps the easiest one to make and win public support for is emergency services using drone technology to save lives and improve public safety.</p> <p>Across the blue lights agencies there are already a handful of examples of drone use for public safety. So the real issue is how UK emergency services can take drone use from small pockets of use by a few agencies, to becoming a regular feature in incident response, making drones business as usual for blue-lights services.</p> <p>This event is designed to try and bridge that gap, allowing industry and end-users the chance to share best practice and lessons about what works. We will explore what made successful projects work, barriers to adoption (cost, policy, skills) what lessons were learned along the way, and how operational staff can drive the drone agenda within their organisation.</p> <p>As well as addressing the technology and the operational case, we will look at how to make the business case, where drones responsibility sits in different agencies, and the different requirements and issues for rural and urban use. Crucially, speakers will explore what industry can do to help blue lights agencies make the case for drones.</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:craig.melson@techuk.org">craig.melson@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:julian.mcgougan@techuk.org">julian.mcgougan@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:henry.rex@techuk.org">henry.rex@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/partner-event/item/13620-seacon-2018-the-study-of-enterprise-agility-conference SEACON 2018 (The Study of Enterprise Agility Conference) http://www.techuk.org/events/partner-event/item/13620-seacon-2018-the-study-of-enterprise-agility-conference Fri, 03 Aug 2018 07:56:31 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org ENGAGE.

The target sectors include Smart Cities, Fintech, Cyber Security, AI and IoT.</p> <p>Participation is open to both SBJBC members and non-members, but will be restricted to a maximum of 25 delegates. Companies will be invited to register interest shortly, but an early bird opportunity to confirm interest is now available.

More young people and increasingly women are starting their own businesses. A number of smart city initiatives have been launched in the buildings, transport, parking, communications and environmental sectors, and a futuristic new city NEOM has been unveiled. Saudi Arabia is keen to access innovative UK expertise and investment. The Saudi SME Authority is leading efforts to improve the business environment for SMEs, and support both start-ups and scale-ups. This is therefore an excellent time for UK companies, funds and advisers to engage.</p> <p>The plan is to spend two days in Jeddah (18-19 November) and&nbsp;two days in Riyadh (20-21 November). The programme is currently being developed, but will include meetings with key industry and governmental stakeholders, including SAGIA, Saudi SME Authority, SABIC and the Ministry of Communications and IT. We will also meet with some of the innovation hubs who attended the SME Forum, including King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Wadi Makkah Company and King Saud University.</p> <p>The delegation will be led by Chris Innes-Hopkins, SBJBC UK Executive Director, who has extensive public and private sector experience of the country. Saudi SBJBC members and investors will be involved, and the mission has the support of SAGIA and the DIT.</p> <p>We will levy a modest programme management fee (with discounts for SBJBC members and SMEs). Participants will be expected to make their own external travel and visa arrangements, but group hotel rates will be offered and local transport arranged.</p> <p>SBJBC programme management will include the following:</p> <ul><li>Logistical guidance and advice with visas</li> <li>Pre-mission briefing with the support of SAGIA, the Saudi Embassy and DIT.</li> <li>Meetings with key Saudi stakeholders, potential clients and investors</li> <li>Networking reception with SBJBC Saudi Members</li> <li>Group transport to meetings from pre-arranged pick up points</li> </ul><p><a href="https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScouw2bF1hgiHbvOt2-VUHDvV6Ns3SEeRZqle_ELFHS3VNGdA/viewform">Again, interest can be registered here.</a>&nbsp;</p> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/13483-agile-warrior-unlocking-the-urban-symposium Agile Warrior Unlocking The Urban Symposium http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/13483-agile-warrior-unlocking-the-urban-symposium Wed, 11 Jul 2018 14:45:29 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Army HQ Concepts Team are holding a 3 day symposium entitled 'Unlocking the Urban' <p><strong>CALL FOR PAPERS:&nbsp;</strong>Army HQ Concepts Team are holding a 3 day symposium entitled 'Unlocking the Urban' with the aim of unlocking the challenges of urban operations for&nbsp;future forces.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Why?</strong>&nbsp;- the traditional Western military advantages of range, speed and firepower are largely negated by the complexity of the urban environment.</p> <p>Army HQ want you to contribute either by presenting and/or coming along.
