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.

Businesses get SMART at the International Digital Lab

smart2010Experts and industry leaders gathered at WMG’s Digital lab in May to discuss SMART technologies in Healthcare, Energy and Transport. ‘SMART’ uses data analytics to enhance our understanding of complex disparate data sets. Collecting large amounts of complex data from healthcare users or processes, distributed energy grids, or huge major transport networks can increase efficiencies and provide savings if examined intelligently.

The event, in partnership with the Digital Systems Knowledge Transfer Network proved a great success, with lively discussions across all industry sectors. The day was split into three sessions concentrating on Healthcare, Energy and Transport. Guests and speakers enjoyed the breadth of material and provided debates on sector specific issues and in particular the cross sector comparisons.

Smart techsmart2010_xaionology is poised to serve our digital society. Many applications are already clear, but it will take vision to understand how this technology will really penetrate modern life. To maximise the opportunities for innovation we need to encourage lateral cross sector thinking in this area.  This is a core approach in Digital Lab’s multi-disciplinarily research. 

Networking between the attendees and speakers will continue into the future with new media forums such as LinkedIn, and further seminars and conferences at the International Digital Lab.
