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.

Visit our people pages to connect directly with expertise in your sector.

Does the EU influence your work, for good or ill? Let us know.

The Balance of Competences Review, launched by the Government last summer, is an opportunity for people from across the spectrum to have their say on what the EU means for the UK. The review is a coalition commitment to analyse where the EU helps and where it hampers. It will look at everything the EU does and how it affects the UK, from the environment to education to EU enlargement and more. To ensure this is an informed and objective analysis, experts and interest groups in the UK and Europe are invited to contribute. This is your chance to have a real input on the EU issues that matter to you. To have your say and for more information you can visit: the https://www.gov.uk/review-of-the-balance-of-competences or join the debate on twitter #BOCReview
The review is broken down into a number of individual reports covering specific areas of policy where the EU has powers.  The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is leading the review of competence in the area of ‘research and development’ which also covers aspects of space, and innovation.  The Call for Evidence on Research and Development, published on 16 May on www.gov.uk , seeks contributions on research, innovation and space.   For more information contact Verity Threlfell or Wendy Simpson via balanceofcompetences@bis.gsi.gov.uk
