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.

Last week, I commented on how the BBC Radio 4 series "The history of the world in 100 objects" had chosen a solar powered lamp as its 100th object. At a conference on Green Photonics earlier this week (on which I will report later), the keynote speaker, Mike Lebby from Translucent in California, also picked out this object as an example of the transformative nature of solar...

Solar Electricity - the case for the UK?

My office window is high enough to look across various roof-tops and, on balance, there is more than enough sunshine to make the case for solar electricity panels to be installed in this part of the UK. Yet there are none in sight. This personal observation was in mind when the ESP KTN ran a residential workshop in Grasmere to consider the case for solar electricity in the UK. ...
