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 Defence 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.

This is a CDE call is for proposals for truly innovative sensing hardware, signal processing and techniques for next generation, day-night, all-weather sensor systems. The purpose of the call is to achieve one or more of the following goals:

  • To develop solutions that deliver a significant decrease in size, weight, cost and power for improved endurance, persistence or coverage
  • To develop solutions that deliver a significant increase in effective range for target detection and identification in difficult environments with scene clutter and noise
  • To develop solutions that deliver a significant increase in field of view whilst retaining high resolution
  • To develop solutions to provide stand-off detection and recognition of targets through obscurants and materials

This call will be launched at a half day event on 4th October in the Bristol area - details have not yet been finalised (and may be subject to change). See the CDE event site for the latest details.
