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.

Overcoming Cellular Barriers: Implications for Industrial Biotechnology

Overcoming Cellular Barriers: Implications for Industrial Biotechnology

July 6th and 7th 2016, Birmingham Hilton Metropole

The function of membranes in bacterial, yeast and mammalian cell factories are an important but underappreciated parameter in optimizing recombinant protein quality and yields.  In addition, the delivery of a therapeutic protein to its target often requires that protein to cross one or more membranes.

Three BBSRC NIBB — BioCatNet, BioProNET and CBMNet — are hosting a two day event to address the challenges of protein secretion and targeting in industrial biotechnology.  Three themes form the backdrop of the meeting: Protein trafficking in eukaryotic cells, protein export from bacterial cell factories and delivery of therapeutic proteins to targets.

The meeting will identify how UK academic and industrial strengths can be exploited to enhance application to future challenges, by combining presentations from leading academics and industrialists to inform and stimulate facilitated discussions. The overall aim is to identify collaborative research projects and teams to bid for funding.
