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 future of health and social care delivery in Northern Ireland following the Donaldson Report



Guests of Honour: Simon Hamilton MLA, Minister for Health, Social Services and Public Safety, Northern Ireland Executive; Pamela McCreedy, Director of Transforming Your Care, Health and Social Care Board and Maeve McLaughlin MLA, Chair, Committee for Health, Social Services and Public Safety, Northern Ireland Assembly

This conference will be a timely opportunity to discuss the future of healthcare and social care provision in Northern Ireland.

It follows Professor Sir Liam Donaldson's wide-ranging review The Right Time, The Right Place - published in January - which examined the effectiveness of the HSC. The review set out ten recommendations for change, which will be central to discussion at this conference - including the 'rebooting' of Transforming Your Care and changes to commissioning models, improved regulation, incident reporting, and a greater use of new technologies and self-care, alongside efforts to create a stronger patient voice.
