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 Electronics, Sensors, Photonics 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.

The Cabinet Office is seeking to appoint a new member to the Science and Technology Honours Committee

The Cabinet Office is seeking to appoint a new member to the Science and Technology Honours Committee

  • This specialist committee considers candidates for honours put forward by members of the public, government departments and professional bodies – and recommends who should for be put forward to the Queen for the New Year and Birthday Honours Lists. 
  • Candidates should be aware of the importance of diversity in the honours process and be prepared to engage in outreach activities, particularly to improve the representation in the honours lists of women, ethnic minority groups, and those living in the north of England and the Midlands.
The work is unpaid (expenses only) but a great role. Applications are particularly welcome from women, minority ethnic and disabled candidates who are under-represented at this level in public life. I understand that they are also keen to strengthen the digital / tech expertise on the committee, but I’m sure they’d welcome good applicants, regardless of field.
Further details and how to apply:
The deadline for applications is 30 November
