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.

Dial-a-Molecule - Promoting Deployment of Statistical Methods in Chemistry
Dial-a-Molecule EPSRC Grand Challenge Meeting Invite:
Experimental Design - an essential skill for chemists. You are cordially invited to an event organised by the EPSRC Dial-a-Molecule Grand Challenge to develop a plan for training in statistical methods for chemistry within academia.
Dial-a-Molecule is an EPSRC funded Grand Challenge network addressing the challenge “How can we make any molecule (by an optimum route, in the desired quantity) in days rather than years”, by developing new ways of working to make synthetic chemistry more successful and versatile.
In one strand of the initiative, Dial-a-Molecule recognises the power of Statistical Design of Experiments and Principal Components Analysis. These approaches have already proved to be effective in a chemistry setting and are used to some extent in, for example, the pharmaceutical industry. However their potential is not fully appreciated or realised, particularly in academia. The network aims to stimulate increased education and deployment of the techniques, underpinned by strong collaboration between chemists and statisticians.
A community event that brings together key stakeholders in the area of chemistry and statistics will be held on 12th May at the Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House, London. The event will start at 10:30 and close at approximately 4:00pm. Lunch will be provided. The objectives for the meeting include:
- Develop a common understanding of the value of statistical methods in chemistry research
- Identify key training gaps
- Explore funding opportunities
- Agree a plan for a pilot programme, reflecting stakeholder input
We would be delighted if you could join us to help shape the initiative. Please could you confirm your availability, together with any dietary requirements for the lunch by return to this email (L.S.Coles@soton.ac.uk) by Friday 3rd May 2014.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Gill Smith, David Fox and Susanne Coles
