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.

Intelligent Sensing Programme 42 - Internet of Things



Sensor devices are everywhere, and will play and increasingly important part in the Internet of Things revolution – indeed, a recent estimate predicts that by 2020 sensors will account for over 60 % of the total installed base of the 30 billion devices in the 'Internet of Things'. This event aims to cover various aspects of this:

  • Connectivity – how are sensor devices integrated together
  • Energy Harvesting – how can devices be powered
  • Creating actionable intelligence – how can the integration of multiple devices provide actionable intelligence to provide information greater than the sum of the individual parts

The 42nd ISP event aims to bring Sensor & Instrumentation academics and industrial partners in this area together in an exciting day of talks, technology demonstrations and networking, 

The ISP events have been the highlight of the Sensors & Instrumentation calendar since the start of the Knowledge Transfer Networks in 2006 and the Faraday Partnerships which preceded them. The core strength of the ISP events is that they aim to showcase new sensing technologies irrespective of their core target markets. This focus on exciting, novel technologies and their applications sits firmly with the Knowledge Transfer Networks aim of encouraging interactions, which otherwise would not happen
