The Technology Strategy Board is… A national body supporting business innovation for business benefit for economic growth for quality of life
An arm’s length executive body
Sponsored by the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS)
Working across government
Partnership with research councils, regional development agencies and the devolved administrations
Focused on business innovation and the application of technology
Investing around £1bn in 2008-2011 (with partner contributions)
Strategies in Key Technology/ Application Areas
Collaborative R&D Competitions
Knowledge Transfer Networks
Key application areas
Medicines & healthcare
Energy generation & supply
High value services
National networks in a field of technology or business application
Funded by the Technology Strategy Board
Bringing together business, research bodies and the finance community …
… to stimulate innovation through exchange of knowledge and expertise.

What is an Innovation Platform?
They address a major policy and societal challenge, by
..understanding Government’s intended use of regulation and procurement to address challenge
..engaging with business and the research community to identify appropriate responses and their development needs
..supporting programmes to deliver innovative solutions
Intelligent Transport Systems
Low Carbon Vehicles
Low Impact Buildings
Detection and Identification of Infectious Agents
There are a lot more people
The UK population over 65 is expected to almost double to 16.8 million by 2051…
… and the number suffering from long-term conditions will rise from 18.5 million to 20.6 million by 2020
75% - 85% of worldwide healthcare spending is on chronic disease management
The global remote healthcare market is worth about £394M. What are the projections for the future???
Assisted Living The challenge
“ Our health, our care, our say” – 2006
to become more responsive to patient needs and prevent ill health by promoting healthy lifestyles – includes provision of care closer to and at home
The Preventative Technology Grant – 2006-8
to initiate a change in the design and delivery of health, social care and housing services and prevention strategies…
to enhance and maintain the well-being and independence of individuals.
Whole system demonstrator programme
Newham, Kent and Cornwall. Large scale - case controlled.
Assisted Living The response – Department of Health
Aim of the Assisted Living IP
The aim of the platform is to significantly advance the technology to meet the demand for independent living from those suffering from chronic conditions (e.g. CHD, COPD, Type 2 Diabetes, Alzheimer's) in particular the increasing demand from the increasing number of the elderly.
Our job is to give the technology greater capability, make it easier to use and cheaper.
This presents a major opportunity for companies involved in the existing telecare market, for new players and for SMEs.
The Technology Roadmap January 2007– Headlines
Communications : addressing isolation, increased interactions between individuals and systems. Improved user interfaces, navigation and location (mobility?).
Data Processing : Data mining and data fusion
Sensors and Devices : increasing the range of functions and improving performance and design
Cross cutting issues : Security and authentication, systems reliability and integration and interoperability

At the moment…
1. Working up proposal to look at economic business models.
2. Working up proposal to look at social/societal issues, hopefully a Call launch in August.
3. Horizontal action on user involvement in all technology oriented collaborative projects.
4. Looking at joint activity with IPs in diagnostics, security privacy and trust IP, Intelligent Transport IP, LIBIP
