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.

European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing

The European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing brings together leading industrial players, research institutes, a vibrant ecosystem of innovators and start-ups, regional and national authorities invested in the scaling up of innovative solutions for the ageing society.

The Partnership and the Reference Sites have accelerated the delivery of innovative solutions to our people, have delivered tools, ideas and innovative socio- economic models that can support the development, deployment and impact measurement of some of the most innovative solutions for active and healthy ageing.  

From the time of its inception in 2012 the Partnership has been striving for the "Triple Win" for Europe:

·         Improving the quality of life of citizens

·         Supporting the sustainability of health & care services

·         Boosting economic growth through large scale innovation

In the course of the next 3 years, the 6 Action Groups of the EIP on AHA will be further developing and implementing their 2016-2018 Action Plans. We will also develop new horizontal initiatives such as the EIP Repository of innovative practices and the Monitoring and Assessment Framework (MAFEIP) tool which will provide a "common language" to assess the impact of innovative services across the triple win.

And if you believe that there are other important areas of innovation for active and healthy ageing that are not currently covered by the 6 Action Groups, or by our horizontal initiatives, we would like to hear from you.

The "Call for Commitments" that will allow you to become a partner of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing is now open (Start here).

Please submit with the first cut-off date of 15 April 2016.  There are plenty of reasons to become a partner of the EIP on AHA. You can find out more details about it in the FAQ page.
