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.

World Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine Congress 2015

World Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine Congress
20 - 22 May 2015,
Business Design Centre, London
Join a panel of leading medical and R&D directors from some of the UK’s pioneering disease foundations discuss and deliberate how they are advocating healthcare’s uptake for regenerative medicine and what more can, and needs to, be done by the industry collectively.
  • Prof. Peter Weissberg, Medical Director, British Heart Foundation
  • Dr. Brian Dickie, Director of Research Development, Motor Neurone Disease Association
  • Ms. Clare McVicker, Director of Research Advocacy, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
  • Prof. Alan Silman, Medical Director, Director of Policy and Health Promotion, Arthritis Research UK
  • Mr. Michael Nation, Director of Development, Kidney Research UK
It is no secret that cell therapies and regenerative medicine have the potential to treat millions of patients in the years to come, but the reality is that there are hurdles to getting them to market and to the patients that need them.
Join the panel, as they come together to review:
  • The uptake from healthcare when asked about cell therapy applications within their clinics
  • How research, conducted through disease foundations, is being used to educate medical professionals
  • What more, if anything, can be done to encourage cell therapies to be used in clinics once they have made it market?
This is just one aspect of 2015’s World Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine Congress that is focussing on successfully scaling-up commercialisation and collaboration to enable market access for cell therapies and regenerative medicine, click here to discover the rest!
