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.

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011 from 10:00am to 4:00pm (GMT)

The Technology Strategy Board is investing £8 million in a programme of competitions to provide full funding for companies to evaluate the performance of new and refurbished buildings. This will help the companies improve the case study building and to specify, design, build and operate better buildings in future.

The competition is open to new buildings, including dwellings, and to major refurbishments of non-domestic buildings where a core objective has been to improve the energy and overall sustainability performance of the building.  In accordance with the programme's objective of encouraging the development of skills and practice in building performance evaluation across the construction and property sectors, first time applicants are particularly encouraged to apply.

The competition programme was launched in June 2010 and the current call for applications opened on 24th October 2011 and will close on 18th January 2012.  Please note that this will be the last opportunity for non-domestic buildings to apply to the competition.

There is a workshop on 8th November in Cardiff, hosted by the Welsh School of Architecture.  This will be followed in the afternoon by surgery sessions where applicants can ask what they need to do to succeed in the call.
