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 medicine - the role of doctors in 2025

the future of medicine - the role of doctors in 2025

19th May

Royal Society of Medicine
1 Wimpole Street
W1G 0AE 

The aim of this conference is to explore just how far the delivery of health and care has been improved by the availability of new technology, and what the latest predictions are by those working in the field of how medicine will really be practised in nine years’ time. It is aimed primarily at senior executives in the health and care world whose decisions today will hasten – or hinder – the arrival of improved technology-enabled care.

We believe we have assembled a real star cast of speakers on this very important topic. George Freeman is the politician in the current government with experience of this area plus a fine mind and excellent presentational skills; Ruchi Dass is one of the most sought-after thinkers on new ways of improving public health and Tony Young as NHS Innovation Director is one of the brightest minds in the NHS. In short, we believe we have assembled the group of speakers with the greatest chance of successfully predicting what will happen over the next nine years!

Objectives of this meeting:

  • To educate attendees on the speed and breadth of medical technological development

  • To stimulate debate on how these dramatic developments will impact on the medical profession in the next ten years

  • To identify particular harbingers of technological change to the medical profession, resulting in the following outcomes

  • An improved understanding of the pace & breadth of medical technology development

  • Increased awareness of the need to plan and anticipate significant change in medical technology

  • An improved understanding of how technology is expected to impact clinical change
