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.

Creative Industries and Healthcare report launched ahead of 'Digital Healthcare: Creative and Commercial Opportunities''

The UK has well-established strengths in healthcare, medical technology, creative industries and digital media. At the overlap between these activities there is enormous potential for innovation, improving well-being and developing products and services for a healthcare market which represents approximately 10% of the economy as a whole.

This area of potential is currently being investigated by the Creative Industries KTN. Just published is The Creative Industries and Healthcare, a report which demonstrates how "it is in digital media that possibilities for the development of new products and services and transformative business practices are especially rich."

This topic will be further discussed at the CIKTN event Digital Healthcare: Creative and Commercial Opportunities, to be held in London, 4-7pm on 2nd May. This event will provide an introduction, showcase innovative work already being done, discuss the creative challenges of developing digital products for this sector, and outline the market opportunities, particularly within the context of new health reforms.

Sponsored by the Technology Strategy Board, the event will see the launch a new funding competition for digital health apps as well as helping to shape the scope of future programmes of investment in digital health products and services. It will be followed by a drinks reception in which businesses and professionals from across the creative and healthcare sectors can meet and initiate collaborations.
