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.

The Green Construction Board is gearing up for Ecobuild 2013!  Come along and visit our stand to find out more about what we do and try out our interactive tools that display the business case for green construction. 

That’s not all. Be sure to participate in one of our events in the Big Tent, located right next to our stand. There’ll be presentations, debates and panel discussions with some of our leading members. 

Tuesday will see the launch of the Low Carbon Routemap by Paul Morrell in the EcoBuild Arena. You’ll be able to explore the Routemap at our stand throughout the three days – plotting your own course to reducing carbon emissions by 2050. And on Wednesday and Thursday come to the Big Tent for a demonstration from the team that developed it.

Other highlights include a discussion of how we as an industry can attract the best and brightest young talent with recent ‘NCE Graduate of the Year’, Claire Gott, and a session on how we can close the performance gap in buildings with UK Green Building Council's Paul King.

Green Construction Board Co-chairs Business Minister Michael Fallon and Mike Putnam, CEO of Skanska UK, will also hold their very own discussion with attendees. They’ll be speaking on the topic of 'Green for Growth - Reality Check', exploring where we should be investing in green infrastructure to get the maximum benefit for UK plc.

Our stand can be found at location reference N630.
