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.

Apply for a funded delegate place at Disruptive Technologies 2016 - 29 September, London

Back in 2013 the McKinsey Global Institute published a report entitled 'Disruptive technologies: Advances that will transform life, business, and the global economy'. The report identified 12 technologies that could drive truly massive economic transformations and disruptions in the coming years. The report also looks at exactly how these technologies could change our world, as well as their benefits and challenges, and offers guidelines to help leaders from businesses and other institutions respond. The Report estimated that, together, applications of the 12 technologies discussed in the report could have a potential economic impact between $14 trillion and $33 trillion a year in 2025. 

The potential benefits of the technologies discussed in the report are tremendous—but so are the challenges of preparing for their impact. If business and government leaders wait until these technologies are exerting their full influence on the economy, it will be too late to capture the benefits or react to the consequences. 
 
Disruptive Technologies Conference will examine the current challenges and opportunities brought by such innovation whilst providing delegates with the opportunity to test technologies via live demonstrations.
 
The Conference will examine all the possibilities of disruptive technologies that lie ahead of us. It will address the frequent challenges faced to business and services that need to be solved. It will provide best practices examples from industry leaders. The conference will give insights to new methods of technology scouting and offers the chance to discuss upcoming challenges related to market disruption, innovative product development and future business models.
 

Full details of the event, including an overview and speakers can be found at http://www.techdisruption.co.uk/ 

If you would would like to apply for a funded (free) delegate place, you can do so can do so by contacting one of the organisers directly at paul@4allofus.org.uk quoting promo code KTN 1. Places will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
