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.

Rare Chance: Tour of the National Composites Centre in Bristol


You will need to register by end of Friday, 4. October if you are interested in a guided tour of the NCC.

As part of our laser event linked to TSB funding, we have arranged a tour of the facilities of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, the NCC in Bristol. Because the site carries out commercially sensitive work, it is usually difficult to arrange a guided tour. 

Composite materials are becoming increasingly important in the production of more durable, lightweight and higher-performing products. They are the high value type of materials the UK needs to develop and be able to machine to keep manufacturing in the UK.

The NCC is a unique facility, that works closly with the world's best researchers and industry and houses cutting edge equipment to make this innovation happening. The guided tour on offer will provide the closest hands on experience possible in a short half hour to learn of what is possible with composites and how they are being produced, machined and used. And, hopefully it will inspire you with new ideas.

If you are interested in the guided tour and want to find out more about our event, that takes place on 18 October 2013, please register here by Friday the 4th October.
