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.

Abstract submission is now open for the Regener8 Annual Conference as part of MEIbioeng15 on 8th September 2015 at the University of Leeds.
The aim of this track  is to understand the requirements, opportunities and strategies (technical, clinical and translational) needed for the delivery of regenerative therapies to the patient. Successful demonstration of both efficacy and cost-effectiveness is central to achieving the goal of realising the health and wealth benefits promised by regenerative medicine and sought as an outcome of the UK’s life sciences strategy and promotion of innovation in the NHS. For further information on the Regener8 track and its scope and focus see its profile on the MEIbioeng webpage.
Top abstracts will be selected for oral presentation; all abstracts will present a poster and be published in the conference programme and abstracts book (with ISBN number).
MEIbioeng15 also intends to offer an abstracts bursary programme to encourage early submission, offered on a first come, first served basis.
The MEIbioeng event has evolved to be the national biomedical engineering event for the UK, originating from the community developed through the former Centres of Excellence in Medical Engineering in the UK (funded by Wellcome Trust and EPSRC from 2009) and The Bioengineering Society Annual Meeting - attracting participants from leading academic centres and the medical technology industry.
