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.

Practical climate change adaptation for existing buildings

London, Tuesday 8 March 2011

9:00am - 2:00pm


This half day event, jointly organised by the MBE KTN and the Construction Products Association (CPA), will continue recent efforts by the TSB and the MBE KTN to address climate change adaptation of buildings in a practical way. It is aimed at two key audiences: the suppliers and manufacturers of construction products which deal with thermal and water management issues in buildings, and the engineers, architects and developers who specify these products on their retrofit and refurbishment projects. Paul Morrell, the Government’s Chief Construction Advisor will give the keynote introduction.

The event aims to: 

  • demonstrate that there is growing market for products and systems which contribute to the low carbon management of temperatures and water in UK buildings in the context of a changing climate.
  • share current good and best practise in adapting existing UK buildings to climate change.
  • showcase practical examples and evidence of where innovative products and systems which address thermal and water management issues are being integrated into UK refurbishment and retrofit building projects.
  • facilitate greater engagement between the manufacturers and suppliers of these products and systems, and the developers, architects and engineers who specify these products and systems for building projects.

Numbers for the event are limited to 60, please register early to guarantee a place http://practicalclimatechangeadaptation.eventbrite.com/
