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 ICT 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.

Could your company benefit from engineering biology?

Could your company contribute to or benefit from engineering biology? Would you like to learn more about this emerging technology? 

SynBioCITE and IET are hosting an 'Engineering Biology' workshop on 5th April in central London to showcase the UK's strengths in synthetic biology and show how companies are benefitting from the latest innovative R&D.

The international speakers have developed a programme that is not aimed at synthetic biology experts, but will instead demonstrate the power of biology to a broader audience.

At this seminar delegates will learn about:

  • An overview of engineering biology from the co-directors of Synthetic Biology Hub, Imperial College and from the Chair in Synthetic Biology from University of Edinburgh

  • An update on the vision and direction of the vibrant world-leading synthetic biology community in the UK from the Co-Chair of the SBLC (Synthetic Biology Leadership Council)

  • The latest collaborative and multidisciplinary research in engineering of biological systems

  • How the convergence of nanotechnology, systems and synthetic biology are producing incredible technologies that are being commercialised and adopted by industry

  • How research is opening up greater avenues for new research.
