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.

PowerelectronicsUK Publishes Consultation Paper

Over the last year, PowerelectronicsUK has worked with the KTN and major stakeholders in industry and academia to develop a detailed understanding of the strengths, challenges and opportunities for the UK Power Electronics Industry.

Based on this analysis, PowerelectronicsUK have now published a Green Paper  called ‘Prioritisation of Enabling Technologies for Power Electronics to Enable UK Industry to Capitalise on Market Opportunities’.

The purpose of the Green Paper is to invite feedback from the industry on the initial assertions and recommendations. From this, we will then publish a white paper to government early in the 2nd quarter of next year. A strong level of industrial participation in this process will maximize the power and impact of the white paper and its recommendations.

We would very much appreciate it if you could respond to this Green Paper. To do this, please go to  www.power-electronics.org.uk  where you will be invited to login and submit your inputs.

You can also input additional information by email to info@power-electronics.org.uk

The Green paper is open to inputs until the 9th of January 2014. Please respond as soon as you can.
