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.

Bridging UK-Jiangsu Innovation Partnership Workshop


Following a successful collaboration with the UK in the China-UK Newton Fund programme, the provincial Jiangsu Science & Technology Department (JSTD) is bringing a delegation of healthcare and smart city companies to London to strengthen the innovation partnership with the UK. This initiative is organised by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) with the support from Innovate UK and BIS.

As one of the most innovative provinces in China, Jiangsu has 10% of China GDP and around US$1b annual R&D budget. It has a strong interest to build direct links with the UK innovative businesses and research organisations to maintain its competitive edge. The Jiangsu Innovation Fund also offers an opportunity for Chinese businesses to access funding for cooperation with UK partners.

The inward to London will comprise an Innovation Bridging Workshop hosted by KTN at the Digital Catapult Centre on Monday 20th June 2016. The workshop will be an opportunity for UK businesses and research organisations to find out about Jiangsu’s innovation landscape and meet its regional businesses.

Outline workshop agenda and list of Jiangsu companies can be downloaded here.
