KTN's online platform helps you to make the connections you need


The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) has refreshed its online platform to intelligently connect you to relevant events, funding, thought pieces and specialist staff to help your business innovate and grow.

You can discover content using your area of interest, from biotechnology to transport; from space to health – all major UK economic sectors are covered. Once you have selected your interests, using our intelligent tagging system, we will then display rich and relevant content related to your area, often from surprising sources.

An example might be new satellite technology from the space sector that is applicable in the agri-food sector. KTN-UK.co.uk will help you form these unusual and valuable connections.

All content on the platform has been carefully curated by our team of innovation specialists – not by an automated algorithm – so you can be confident that KTN is connecting you to the most relevant cutting-edge information.


The move also marks a closer alignment with our main funder, Innovate UK , with the website branding making a clear visual link. Knowledge Transfer Network is Innovate UK's innovation network partner, and also works with other funders to provide innovation networking services and fulfil our mission to drive UK growth.

We link new ideas and opportunities with expertise, markets and finance through our network of businesses, universities, funders and investors. From agri-food to autonomous systems and from energy to design, KTN combines expertise in all sectors with the ability to cross boundaries. Connecting with KTN can lead to potential partners, horizon-expanding events and innovation insights relevant to your needs.

WISE Awards: Celebrating individuals and organisations that are leading the way for women in STEM

WISE is a campaign to inspire girls and women to study, work and build careers in science, technology, engineering and manufacturing (STEM). 

The 2015 WISE Awards are now open for nominations of individuals and organisations that should be recognised for the support they give for girls and women in STEM.

The WISE Awards aim to achieve the following objectives:

  • Celebrate excellence and the contribution women make to Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Manufacturing in the UK
  • Share stories to inspire others, especially those that would otherwise consider that these subjects and careers were not for “people like me”
  • Recognise the critical role that organisations and individuals have in influencing the choices of girls and women
  • Showcase the winners and mobilise them to actively work with WISE to achieve our goal of '1 million more women in STEM'

The deadline for nominations is 9.00am Monday 17 August 2015.
