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.

Meet the Quantum Hubs event, 19th January, London

£270m is being invested to develop quantum technology in the UK and four University Hubs have been formed to lead this initiative. This is expected to lead to new, ultra sensitive electromagnetic, optical and gravity sensors, and accelerometers, and to new capability in information technology.

This event provides an introduction to the UK Quantum Technology Programme, with presentations from the Hubs (Birmingham, Glasgow, Oxford and York), and from NPL, Dstl and the South West Quantum Technologies Group. The Lancaster Quantum Technology Centre has also been invited. Professor David Delpy CBE FRS, Chairman of the Defence Scientific Advisory Committee and former Chief Executive of EPSRC, will introduce the day. A Q&A panel session will provide an opportunity for delegates to put questions to the speakers.
This free-to-attend event will be held at the Ambassadors Bloomsbury Hotel, 12 Upper Woburn Place, London WC1H 0HX from 10:00 to 17:00. Register here.
