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.

Energy Efficient Buildings: E2B Project Review

You may be interested in EeB PPP Project Review 2010-2011 publication, which showcases all 100 projects so far funded under the EU’s Energy Efficient Buildings programme.

The projects presented are wide and varied, ranging from cost-effective super-insulating materials and multifunctional vaccum-insulating panels using nanotechnology to intelligent energy-management systems.

The projects demonstrate scientific and technological excellence, and discuss approaches for dissemination and exploitation of results.

Projects aim at introducing new products and processes into the market and some of them are already demonstrating potential for commercialisation.

Dear all
Apologies for the delay with responding. I've just re-set up the link and tested - it should be working fine now.
Please ensure that you are a member of the MBEKTN and logged in when you are trying to download this report. Otherwise you'll see the message that it's not accessible.
