Our Mission

The KTN Built Environment Community delivers the Innovation Network function for practitioners in the urban living sectors.  It's a purpose build vehicle to bring the community sub sets together to share best practice, linking funders to finance seekers, inspire collaboration and showcase new opportunities for the UK's small businesses in this area.  A wider mission is also to bring these businesses closer to the research bases, bigger tier operators and collaborative opportunities outside this sector.
