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.

NIHR HSC mHealth survey

Can you help the NIHR Horizon Scanning Centre, University of Birmingham, England identify innovative new/emerging mHealth technologies & trends or developments?

I would like to invite you to contribute to a horizon scanning exercise we are conducting on the future of mobile health (mHealth) solutions as public health interventions by completing a short online survey. It comprises 14 questions and should not take more than a few minutes to complete. 

The survey is available at: here

It aims to capture:

a) Your informed (expert) opinion about the future of mobile technologies as agents of behavioural change for public health.
b) Basic details about any innovative/yet to be widely released interventions that use mobile technologies for public health improvement that you may be aware of.
c) Details of developers that you consider to be noteworthy in this area.

(Confidentiality will be protected where appropriate.)

A public version of this horizon scanning review will be published on our website later this year.

If you have any questions about this review or the completion of the online questionnaire please contact April Coombe, Lead researcher for this review at a.r.coombe@bham.ac.uk
