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.

Open Consultation on EGNOS OS Service Definition Document (SDD)

The EGNOS Service Definition Document for the Open service (EGNOS OS SDD) has been published by the European Commission (EC) when commissioning the EGNOS Open Service on 1st October 2009.

An open public consultation process has been recently opened on this document with the objective to ensure that the development of the EGNOS service Definition Documents takes into account the views of today’s GNSS key stakeholders. This will subsequently help towards a smooth and rapid rollout of GNSS equipments and applications integrating EGNOS capabilities and the soonest possible delivery of user benefits. The EGNOS OS SDD will ultimately:

  • Improve the knowledge of the mass market GNSS users and application developers on the benefits of EGNOS services for the applications they are using or intending to use,
  • Provide user’s support related to the EGNOS services, environment and service provision as well as basic information and relevant technical references for the signal in space and performance;
  • Foster the development of GNSS receivers and applications using EGNOS;
  • Increase manufacturers and application developer’s confidence in European GNSS programmes by the establishment of a link between the EGNOS system stakeholders, from programme manager and operator to end users.

The feedbacks received within this consultation will be used by the EC to develop improved versions of the OS SDD and to enhance the SoL SDD currently in preparation and planned to be released mid 2010.

This is an important opportunity to express your comments and suggestions to the EC for the continued development of the EGNOS Service Definition Documents. Future developments are still under consideration and open to your input.

To participate to this consultation you can fill in the on-line forms on http://www.egnos-portal.eu/
