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.

Energy Harvesting subgroup launched


Energy harvesting is a means of powering wireless electronic devices by scavenging many low grade ambient energy sources from the immediate environment and their conversion into useable electrical energy.


The Electronics, Sensors, Photonics KTN has followed up its longstanding interest and activity in energy harvesting technology by launching the Energy Harvesting subgroup.


We would like to invite you to join this subgroup to receive regular updates about this topic, key events, funding calls, to get involved in collaborative R&D and generally for the opportunity to network with other members.


To join please go to the subgroup's page


This subgroup is intended to focus on knowledge exchange and networking support for the business community and help connect it to the academic community of energy harvesting technology developers. In particular it will assist the potential end-users of the technology to understand its potential and access expertise to enable exploration of applications.


We have partnered with the Energy Harvesting Network, which comprehensively covers the research community, to ensure that together we cover the entire spectrum of interest in EH technologies and their applications.
