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.

£8m available for marine and maritime innovation

The TSB and its partners are investing up to £8m to encourage research and development in the area of marine vessels efficiency.

The ‘Vessel Efficiency: Piloting Marine and Maritime Innovation’ competition opens in January 2013 and is funded by the TSB, working in conjuction with the Ministry of Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (dstl) and Scottish Enterprise. Proposals are invited, from  businesses, whether they are currently inside or outside the marine industry, to develop solutions covering a wide range of technology areas with the potential to improve vessel efficiency in existing and future ships, boats, submarines, and their associated equipment and systems.

Iain Gray, Chief Executive of the Technology Strategy Board, said:

"The UK's marine industries employ over 90,000 people, generate over £10 billion turnover and  have tremendous prospects for growth through innovation. The UK is well-placed to exploit future opportunities, both domestically and globally, and the funding available through this competition aims to help grow the sector through building collaboration – including with small and micro companies – and developing the UK supply chain."
