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.

The Age of No Retirement?

27, 28, 29 April 2015
The People’s History Museum (Left Bank, Spinningfields, Manchester, M3 3ER)
Exploring the value within a society where people are living longer - 3 days, 4 themes, 24 co-design labs, 40 impact stories, 600 participants, 300 organisations.
We are living longer. And whether we welcome it or not, change is inevitable - in how we live our lives, and how we shape society around us. 
Now is the time to explore together the opportunities that this change could mean for us all - in work, in education, in our communities, in the world as a whole.
And for you. Whether you're young or old, this is an issue about YOU. And how we think
and what we do today will affect us all, both now and in the future.
'The Age of No Retirement?' is a collaborative movement including employers, policy makers, innovators, designers, academics and citizens in creating a society without age barriers, where skills, capabilities, knowledge and wisdom are valued whatever your age - young or old.
Join us at the People's History Museum in April to prototype your future.
