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.

Find out how you can help shape the UK Government’s Science and Innovation Strategy

The government is planning to publish a new Science and Innovation Strategy later this year. In order to ensure that this strategy will be based on strong foundations, they are gathering evidence from stakeholders.

For the last six months, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) have been working collaboratively with stakeholders from the science and research, higher education, innovation and business communities, gathering evidence of what works in practice and what people in industry, academia and elsewhere need to help them innovate.

They now want to hear from you!

You are invited to take part in their online survey to help form the new Science and Innovation Strategy and make the UK the best place in the world to do science and the most attractive place to start, finance and grow an innovative business.

The deadline for giving your views on the Citizen Space website is 12th September 2014.
