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.

Cisco Launches New M2M Router


Cisco has launched a new machine-to-machine router - which is advdrtised as "dovetailing with Cisco’s pusuit of the “Internet of things” concept, putting networking capabilities into machines not typically connected to the Internet, from ATMs and refrigerators to GPS systems, portable medical devices and vending machines".
The new router comes just as the idea of machine-to-machine (M2M) Internet connections is about to take off, according to Inbar Lasser-Raab, senior director for marketing for Cisco’s ISR product line and Borderless Networks strategy.
“There is a lot of interest” in such technology, Lasser-Raab said in an interview with eWEEK. The M2M trend “is on the cusp of really big growth.”
The idea is to enable businesses to use the Cisco 819 ISR gateway to extend the corporate 3G/4G wireless WAN services to devices located far away from a business’ headquarters. The router is also IPv6-ready, which will be particularly important in large-scale deployments, Lasser-Raab said.
According to Cisco’s numbers, by 2015, there will be 25 billion connected devices, with much of the Internet traffic being generated by communications between machines.
