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.

Making Telecoms Work: From Technical Innovation to Commercial Success

Bridging the industry divide between the technical expertise of engineers and the aims of market and business planners, a new book, Making Telecoms Work provides a basis for more effective interdisciplinary analysis of technology, engineering, market and business investment risk and opportunity. 

Since fixed and mobile broadband has become a dominant deliverable, multiple areas of transition and transformation have occurred; the book places these changes in the context of the political, social and economic dynamics of the global telecommunications industry.

Drawing on 25 years of participative experience in the mobile phone and telecommunications industry, the author closely analyses the materials, components and devices that have had a transformative impact. By presenting detailed case studies of materials innovation, such as those shown at success story Apple, the book shows how the collaboration of technological imagination with business knowledge will shape the industry’s future.

• Makes a link between the technical aspects and the business practice of the telecoms industry, highlighting the commercial and economic significance of new developments

• Gives a historical analysis of past successes and failures in order to identify future competitive advantage opportunities

• Supplies detailed case studies of supply chain disconnects and the impact these have on industry risk and profitability

• Brings together technological detail with analysis of what is and is not commercially important, from the implications of energy and environmental networks to the technical details of wireless network hardware.

London’s Science Museum, would be delighted if you could join us for NEXT25 to hear about the new book, learn about follow on projects and to get an update on progress on its new gallery, The Making of Modern Communication, opening in 2014.

NEXT25 will be held in the Museum’s ‘In Future’ space in the contemporary Wellcome Wing from 4.45 to 6.45pm on Wednesday 25th January.

The project is part of on-going fund raising initiatives that help to demonstrate the relevance of the Science Museum to present and future strategic decision making in the telecoms industry and present and future industrial research.
