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.

The cupboard is bare: how technology can address key unmet needs in mental health

Wireless Healthcare SIG

‘The cupboard is bare: how technology can address key unmet needs in mental health’

This will be held on 13th October at Philips Research, 101 Science Park, Cambridge. 

Mental health is an area of healthcare where the patient numbers are growing and therefore the need for diagnostics, treatments and monitoring are looking towards innovative approaches driven by technology. It is one of the most underserved areas in regards to technology but one that would benefit most. This insightful, half day Cambridge event, hosted by Philips Research Laboratories and jointly sponsored by TTP and Plextek, will explore the needs from the perspective of the healthcare professional and patient. Industry experts will look at how technology providers can be at the front end of innovation by understanding how to design and implement systems for areas of unmet needs in this key growing healthcare market.

Gain incremental insight into the technological advancements transforming the delivery of mental healthcare. This dynamic event will culminate in an ‘Ask the Experts’ session, integrating a live Twitter discussion where keynote speakers provide advice to people hoping to develop technology for this area and answer technical questions, which can be submitted both before and during the event.
