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.

How can we use digital to put sustainability at the heart of the UK economy?

Tuesday 29 May, Rich Mix, London

At the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) we invest billions of pounds a year to promote and enable innovation in the UK. But the world is changing fast, and we believe that to keep the UK economy competitive in the long term, we need to put sustainability at its heart.

So now we need your help. 

We’ve been working with leading sustainability non-profit Forum for the Future to build a framework for a sustainable economy. We now want to turn that into a digital tool that will help UK businesses innovate better, and the TSB to make better investment decisions.

In this Digital Shoreditch Openhouse session, we are throwing out this content to your creativity. The best ideas will be taken forward by the TSB to build the tool in 2012.

Who are we looking for?

  • Digital professionals who can bring a creative approach to this project. We want a mix, so coders, creatives, business minds - all digital types are welcome!

What will you get out of it?

  • Understanding and insight into sustainability trends and issues
  • Exposure to Technology Strategy Board and Forum for the Future’s people and networks 
  • Networking opportunities with your peers in the digital community
  • Profile for the best ideas
  • Fun – drinks, food and fun provided! 

This session will be run under a ‘creative commons’ ethos, so be prepared to share and collaborate.
