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.

Workshop, 18 April 2012: Future Cities – What does it mean for Industry?

As part of the recent Budget Day announcement, the government revealed plans for a Future Cities Catapult Centre that will demonstrate how technology and innovation can improve services and the overall quality of life for those who live and work in cities.



In bringing forward this Future Cities programme, the TSB is determined to support UK companies to:

1. Enable a range of innovation – human, financial, business model, technology – centred around the citizen
2. Promote integrated solutions across subsystems to address complex city problems.


The end result is that through developing innovation around city solutions, UK companies will be able to gain a competitive edge in global markets that could be worth hundreds of billions a year.


As the next stage of this Catapult programme, The Future Cities Special Interest Group (SIG) is presently seeking to invite a range (circa 50 in total) of key industry stakeholders to take part in a workshop on 18 April 2012 that will address some of the key challenges and opportunities shaping the urban environment for future generations to come.


If you think you can add value to this important debate and would like to register your interest in participating, please apply for a place here.
