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.

Scandinavia Exporter Boot Camp

Scandinavia Exporter Boot Camp

1st March 2016


Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Development International would like to invite you to come and join us at our upcoming Scandinavian Exporter Boot Camp on 1st March 2016 in Edinburgh, at Surgeons Hall.

The Scandinavian countries Norway, Sweden and Denmark are an attractive export market for healthcare companies due to their political stability, high GDP and high per capita expenditure on healthcare, which is some of the highest of all OECD countries. According to recent estimates, the total size of the healthcare market in the three countries combined is approximately USD5.6bn.

Doing business in Scandinavia is easy due to the harmonised regulatory system for medical devices across Europe. The Exporter Boot Camp provide you with plenty of useful information to develop winning strategies for selling into Scandinavia, help you with choosing the best market for you and guide you step-by-step through the journey of market access.

Confirmed speakers include:

·         Iris Öhrn, Business Region Gothenburg

·         Jan Aage Røtnes, Realtor

·         Charlotte Bruun Piester, Sinua Partners

·         Emil Lindegaard Carlsen, Wallace Cameron

If you have any specific questions, you’ll be able to arrange private 1:1 meetings with speakers after the main session on the day.
