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 Digital Creative 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.

About the Creative Industries KTN


Since our inception in July 2008, the Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network ( CI KTN) has established itself as one of the UK's largest creative industries networks. Our goal is to stimulate and encourage innovation in the creative industries, helping people to realise the potential of the creative industries to motivate lasting change.

We work with large and small creative businesses, technology developers, universities, investors and government agencies and help them connect with each other.

We put innovation into context within the current structure for change in the creative industries. We engage with all sectors across the creative industries to ensure a landscape perspective of communities and their potential for innovation.

The Creative Industries KTN presents a broad range of opportunities for innovators within the creative industries. We organise Creative Industries-KTN-led events showcasing the best of technology and innovation in the sector, as well as supporting other creative industries events.

We strive to create a space in which like-minded people can communicate and collaborate. We bring together leading thinkers and practitioners from the UK and beyond, to share the latest technology insights and find ways to maximise their potential within the creative industries.
