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.

Nonlinear PDEs in Micromagnetism; Analysis, Numerics and Applications


Name Institution
Banas, Lubomir Heriot-Watt University
Brzezniak, Zdzislaw University of York
Prohl, Andreas University of Tuebingen

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts from analysis, numerical mathematics, modelling and applications related to micromagnetism to stimulate discussion and to facilitate the exchange of ideas across disciplines. We hope to identify areas where the different disciplines could benefit from interactions with experts from other disciplines and where such collaboration could lead to significant advances in the solution of theoretical and practical micromagnetic problems and nonlinear partial differential equations in general. Although the focus of the meeting is on nonlinear partial differential equations in micromagnetism, there is an overlap with a range of related areas, such as, for instance, nonlinear stochastic (partial) differential equations, Navier-Stokes equations, harmonic heat flow and wave map equations, Maxwell's equations, linear and nonlinear elasticity and plasticity, thin-film equations.
