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.

Australian government broadband roll-out webinar on march 1st a must-attend for potential UK suppliers

As the biggest infrastructure project in its history, Australia is aiming to construct the world's largest highspeed broadband environment - primarily for reasons of maintaining international competetiveness in the global economy. Given too the ever-increasing levels of internet usage, the roll-out is regarded as an essential manoeuvre to keep ahead of the game. When completed it is estimated that 93% of Australians will have gigabyte or equivalent service using fibre.


Although the sheer scale of this National Broadband Network (NBN) project currently engages much debate - what data speeds are required and what role wireless technologies should play etc - one thing is clear, the ambitious nature of the rollout will by default present a raft of opportunities for UK telcos and beyond.


Kate Cornick, Executive Director of the Institute for a Broadband-Enabled Society (and previously Senior Telecommunications Advisor to the Australian Government), will host this webinar to highlight to UK firms the numerous opportunities associated with the rollout of the NBN. See Mark Leaver's recent Global markets article for information about how to register.
