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 biotechnology 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.

Your views needed - new "Transport systems and integration" sub-group created on _Connect

Recently the Technology Strategy Board announced 10 areas where they feel a Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) could potentially support UK innovation and grow to become a global leader. Transport Systems and Integration is one of the 10 areas on the shortlist. There will now be a period of around 6 months to develop and hone the case for a Transport System and Integration TIC.


A new discussion space has been set up on _Connect at /web/transport-systems-and-integration/overview where you can post your thoughts on what the scope of such a TIC would be, what the TIC would look like and what it could offer in terms of actual business impact.
