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.

KSS AHSN & SEHTA Surgeries March 2015

With the NHS funding capped and limited opportunities for interacting with NHS staff, selling to the NHS will inevitably become more challenging. With a better understanding of their priorities and how cash flows around the system you will be able to prepare a more compelling and comprehensive value proposition. 
Rob Berry, Head of Innovation at the Kent Surrey and Sussex AHSN and Dr David Parry, CEO of SEHTA are offering one to one appointments to review value propositions for high value products or services which are on or close to market. 
Companies from Kent Surrey and Sussex who have products and/or services which they believe could be sold to the NHS and care sector, especially those products and services which address the challenges of our ageing population, can apply for a free appointment. 
The appointments will be around 30 minutes in duration and will cover; 
  • The technical and market potential of your product/service
  • How current NHS finances and cash flow may impact on product uptake
  • Improving the value proposition for NHS audiences
