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 Institute’s 100-day Behaviour Change energy management challenge - call for participants

The Energy Institute (EI) is calling for interested parties - energy managers, psychologists, change specialists and, in particular, end user organisations - to get involved in a 100-day Behaviour Change Challenge to design and implement short-term energy management programmes.

Underpinned by behavioural psychology, the programmes will demonstrate how cross-disciplinary approaches can help organisations reduce their energy use and environmental impact.  Consortia of energy management specialists, psychology professionals and organisations of all sizes will be asked to develop and apply an energy management plan and subsequently share the lessons learned.

The Challenge is driven by the EI’s Behaviour Change Working Group, a sub-committee of the EI Energy Management Panel that brings together energy management professionals and psychologists to develop and disseminate practical knowledge about changing behaviours towards the more efficient use and management of energy.

This project is still at concept stage. Any individuals, teams or organisations that would like to learn more, make suggestions, take part in or sponsor the challenge should contact Sarah George at e: sgeorge@energyinst.org or on t: +44 (0)20 7467 7164.
