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.

Johnson Matthey, a leading provider of pharmaceutical services, active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and catalyst technologies and Domainex Ltd.

The focus will be on providing academic institutes, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies across the UK and beyond with effective, simplified, rapid and reduced risk target-to-lead identification, optimisation, safety/toxicology, pre-clinical and clinical API supply services.

Domainex is a leading provider of small molecule drug discovery services that complement the pre-clinical to commercial range of services provided by Johnson Matthey Fine Chemicals’ Custom Pharma Solutions offering in Europe. Through an integrated offering co-located in the Cambridge region, customers will be able to access Domainex’s target-to-lead identification and optimisation capabilities, and will then be able to transfer their projects directly to Johnson Matthey, utilising its Pharmorphix solid state services for effective salt form and polymorph identification through to process development, scale-up and non-GMP toxicology manufacture. With all activities co-located in the Cambridge area, discovery and development time and risk can be greatly minimised.
