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.

The European Space Agency opens an Announcement of Opportunity for scientific studies in areas of advanced GNSS research

With this call the Agency intends to foster the scientific utilization of EGNOS and Galileo and to gather feedback from the scientists to designers and integrators of the next generation navigation satellites with a view to maximize the scientific value of the exploitation of the European GNSS signals and data.

The key goals of the GNSS Science Announcement of Opportunity are:

  • To raise the awareness of the features of the European Satellite Navigation Systems (EGNOS and Galileo) in the scientific community
  • To elaborate concepts and/or design experiments which can improve scientific insights by making use of the European SatNav systems
  • To provide feedback from the scientific community using GNSS signals to the European GNSS Evolutions Programme
  • The proposals should therefore demonstrate that they are addressing significant scientific issues by exploiting EGNOS or Galileo and to the European GNSS Evolutions Programme

Proposals are invited to address research related to GNSS signals including but not limited to the following areas:

  • General Earth Sciences
  • Geodesy and geodynamics
  • Remote sensing using GNSS signals
  • Ionosphere and Space weather
  • Troposphere and meteorology
  • General Metrology
  • Time and frequency
  • Reference Frames
  • Positioning and Navigation
  • Fundamental Physics
  • GNSS and Relativity
  • GNSS and Astronomy
