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.

Managing Energy on Marine Vessels Competition Briefing & Webinar

Innovate UK and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (dstl) are to invest up to £7.5m in collaborative R&D projects to improve the ways in which energy is managed on ships and other marine and maritime vessels.

The focus of this competition is on the underlying technological challenges that will enable greater efficiencies in the production, management and use of energy. 

See the Guidance Notes

Proposals are being sought from companies within the marine and maritime sector, but also those operating outside it. Companies should have expertise in aspects of electrical systems, energy management or performance monitoring. 

Proposals must be collaborative and business-led, and micro and small businesses should get involved. Expected funding will be for mainly industrial research projects in which a business partner will generally attract up to 50% public funding for their project costs (60% for SMEs). 

We expect projects to range in size from total costs of £500k to £1.5m, although we may consider projects outside this range. 

This is a two-stage competition that opens for applicants on 12 January 2015. The deadline for expressions of interest is at noon on 11 March 2015. 

The event will also include updates on opportunities within Horizon 2020 and the MARTEC EraNet.

A webinar will also be held alongside the event .  Click here to register for the webinar only.
