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.

Is the UK having a tech renaissance?

New figures suggest a welcome resurgence in the UK and Irish tech scene, says a recent article in Management Today. The site points out that more than £1billion was invested in 232 deals worth over £500,000 in the UK last year - the highest level of investment in tech companies in UK and Ireland for over a decade.

Confidence has also been boosted by the fact that that investment into UK technology start-ups reached a ten year high in the first half of 2012, with nearly £600m put into early stage businesses. 

Tech hubs form a major part of the picture.  In the fourth quarter of 2012, London based tech companies captured £151m of investment, representing 72% of the value of the market in the quarter. 

In recent months the coalition government has placed a heavy emphasis on the technology sector, which it believes will provide stable growth and jobs for the future so these figures are encouraging. They demonstrate that tech is quite rightly beginning to play a leading role in the UK economy.
