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.

SMART DC Electrical Power Systems AMSCI Questionnaire

ESP KTN facilitated a meeting on the 4th July 2013 to scope a potential bid into the AMSCI competition for a SMART DC Electrical Power Systems project.

Background to the event can be found here.

The agenda, approved slides from the event and a sheet summarising the outcomes of 3 discussion sessions can be found here.

Principals of the outcomes centred on the need for standards, demand side management of energy consumption, interfaces with legacy systems and protection systems. Key enablers for the roll out of this type of technology were seen as High Temperature Devices, Converter vs transformer technology, DC circuit breakers, efficient no load converters, Grid support, DC ohmic losses, SMART AC vs DC.

We would now like to canvas your views on the key aspects of DC systems and the opportunity to joining an AMSCI consortium in this area. A questionnaire ihas been set up here and we would request you complete as fully as possible.
