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.

'Building A Medicines Manufacturing Supply Chain for the Future'

Wednesday, 6th May 2015, 9.30am - 4.30pm

Radisson Blu Hotel, Liverpool


Kindly hosted by     <image.png>


The Medicines Manufacturing Industry Partnershipsupported by ABPI and BIA, has been established to bring the UK’s medicines manufacturing industry together to create an attractive and innovation-rich environment to drive UK competitiveness, and build international recognition in medicines manufacturing.  To help strengthen the medicines manufacturing community, a series of technical workshops will be delivered by the KTN. 

The first of these, hosted by Actavis on 6th May, will explore and discuss supply chain challenges and examine supply chain issues faced in the manufacture of small molecule, biologic and cell therapy medicines. It will also bring together experts from other sectors with a view to sharing best practice and considering next generation supply chains. 

This will be an interactive one-day workshop, and as places are limited priority will be given to practitioners in the field. In order to be most productive on the day we welcome debate and contributions on the following questions having been considered by participants prior to the event:

  • What are the major challenges across your supply chain and are these unique to your products or common across the therapeutic classes?
  • Where are the quick wins for supply chain innovation and what are the main barriers preventing this?
  • Where have you seen the greatest supply chain innovation and what can be learned from other sectors?

For further information please contact Mark Bustard (mark.bustard@ktn-uk.org) and request registration via Jean Aligorgi (jean.aligorgi@ktn-uk.org).  There is no registration fee for this workshop.
