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.

Five top European biotech SMEs to be rewarded

Five top European biotech SMEs to be rewarded by Commissioner Carlos Moedas and EuropaBio

EuropaBio, the European Association for Bioindustries, today announces the finalists for the 6th edition of its Most Innovative European Biotech SME Awards, a unique annual initiative recognising innovative biotech SMEs and the crucial role they play in answering some of society’s greatest challenges.  .

While some of today’s most successful business giants may have started from luminaries experimenting in garages, over the years highly innovative small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in Europe have developed novel ways of addressing challenges such as unmet medical needs, resource efficiency, climate change, energy shortages and an ageing and ever increasing population..

Twenty-six such SMEs from eleven European countries applied for this year’s awards and the Jury have shortlisted five companies, three in the healthcare category and two in the industrial biotech category, to participate in the awards ceremony taking place during EuropaBio’s Event on the Benefits of Biotechnology at the European Parliament on 23rd of June. The awards will be presented by Carlos Moedas, EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation.
