What We Do

The overall objective of the MBE KTN infrastructure programme is the “identification of innovation gaps and brokering of new collaborations to exploit funding opportunities for the infrastructure sector”.

The specific objectives are to

  • identify innovation needs within the infrastructure sectors (energy, telecommunications, transport, waste, water)
  • broker collaborations within the infrastructure supply chain through engagement of existing forums
  • identify opportunities for, and influence, funding for short, medium and long term challenges including Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs), Technology Strategy Board funding competitions and EPSRC funding calls
  • showcase results of KTP projects and other research via webinars and other events.
