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.

Solving the Challenges of Developing eHealth Solutions

The UK is a major centre for innovation in electronics.  There have been many developments in medical electronics in the UK, but it is felt the industry has not truly taken advantage of this large market opportunity.

ESP-KTN and NMI are running this event, focused on medical electronics, to develop a better understanding of this market opportunity. The event will study the challenges in developing electronic product solutions for the medical market. Building on the experiences of industry experts we will look to understand where these challenges lie: on technical implementation, market understanding, certification or clinical reluctance to adopt new technology.

Presentations will include the following organisations:

BitWise - Fergus Duncan
"Writing software for medical device approval"

Plextek - Jon Lewis
"How to create a global customer base and wide product portfolio"

Sharp - Campbell Brown

Toumaz - Richard McPartland
"SensiumVitals a single patient use wireless vital signs monitoring system" "IEEE802.15.6 ultra low power Wireless Body Area Network"

University of Westminster - Professor Izzet Kale & Steve Morris
"Technologies and Research activities for ultra-low power medical devices"

Other presentations will be announced shortly.

Following the presentations there will be a debate on what are the key opportunities and challenges for electronics companies in the medical electronics market.
