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 Defence Security 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.

Memorandum of Understanding to help worldwide collaboration

The University of Leicester has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Zhejiang Police College in China. This MoU is designed to encourage collaboration in forensic science, particularly in the area of fingermark analysis, but also other areas of 'traditional policing'.

It is also hoped that the MoU will allow for a greater exchange of ideas across the board and give opportunities for students and academics to participate in exchange trips and collaborative projects.

Dr John Bond OBE, from the University of Leicester Department of Criminology (and a member of the Forensic Science SIG Steering Group), signed the MoU on behalf of the University. He Said: "Zhejiang Police College is a new technical university specialising in criminal justice disciplines, such as forensic science. Whilst we have already started to exchange ideas with ZPC in this area, the collaboration offers opportunities for Leicester academics and students with an interest in the broader aspects of Chinese society."

More information can be found here, and via the press release.
