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.

Advanced Engineering Show -KTN Enabling Innovation Zone

The Advanced Engineering show brings together OEMs, Tier 1 manufacturers and many working across the supply chain in aerospace; automotive; motorsport; transport; civil engineering and other sectors. 
The KTN are pleased to announce that this year they are part of the Enabling Innovation area, in partnership with Magna International. The KTN have stepped up their networking activities at the show, with significant brokerage opportunities for delegates attending the show which we hope will bring about new collaborations. This will be on three levels:
Pre-booked meeting mojo whilst at the event. There are a dedicated number of booths for 1-1’s at the show. Business, Academics, Research Organisations and consultants can opt in to meeting mojo during the registration process ahead of the show and the KTN will take care of disseminating the profiles to assist in meeting bookings at the show. 
The Collaboration Corner is a new feature for the advanced Engineering show and a much loved tool the KTN has used before. If you can’t stay for the whole show or it clashes with another yet you would like to find partners or have a project offer you need partners for we can post these for you. In particular there is an ERANET call  https://photonicsensing.eu/ applicable to a wide range of sectors and the KTN is working on an EU project  www.respice-sme.eu  and will endeavour to attract its EU partners to attend or submit a partnering profile and assist in EU collaborations. 
The KTN are hosting some key presentations to spark discussion and offering 1-1s with the speakers which you can sign up for through meeting mojo or book on the day.
