The trade association for instrumentation, control, automation and laboratory technology in the UK — GAMBICA — has become an active supporter of the Sensors Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), through its involvement with the KTN’s Advanced Instrumentation Special Interest Group (AISIG).

The Sensors KTN, which is managed on behalf of the UK Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) by the National Physical Laboratory and Qi3, is the national sensing network, uniting the talent and expertise of the whole of the UK’s sensing community, from academics and large industries, to small businesses, research councils and government departments. It embraces all sensing activity, from fundamental measurement principles to instrumentation, data processing, devices and innovative applications.

The AISIG will establish a UK community in the instrumentation sector and encourage industry and academics to develop innovative technologies, interact throughout the supply chain and compete on the world stage.
