The first meeting of European Knowledge Tree Group (EKTG) took place in Denmark in September 2010, followed up by a Symposium at the London School of Economics (LSE) later that year.
The European Knowledge Tree Group mission is for the advancement of health and saving of lives through the advancement of the use of eTechnology worldwide. EKTG does this by making educational and training opportunities available for the development of individual capabilities, competences, skills and understanding of the use of information technology in the field of eTechnology.
These opportunities will be made available to professional practitioners in health, social care and wider sectors. EKTG defines eTechnology literacy as “the ability to seek, find, understand and appraise from digital sources and apply the knowledge gained’.
The EKTG also seeks to cooperate with like-minded organisations in order to source funding to achieve its aims.
