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.

Future Cities Consultation Workshops

Future Cities is one of the potential candidate areas for a Technology and Innovation Centre. The Technology Strategy Board is exploring whether or not establishing a TIC is the best strategy for supporting this area, and if so building the business case for establishing one. See /web/future-cities1/overview  for full details.

To this end the Modern Built Environment KTN and the Technology Strategy Board are running two consultation workshops to explore the challenges and opportunities in Future Cities and developing a business case for a TIC. Workshops will take place in Bristol on 3 November and Manchester on 14 November.

We anticipate a very high level of interest in these consultation workshops and therefore would request that you apply for a place using the form below. We will notify successful applicants one week prior to the event. We are seeking to guage opinions from a wide range of stakeholders, therefore places are strictly limited to one person per organisation.
