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.

Invitation to take part in an evaluation of the Low Impact Buildings Innovation Platform (LIB-IP)

Innovate UK is currently evaluating the impact achieved by investing public funds to support innovation within the building and construction sector, through the Low Impact Building Innovation Platform. They need your help to inform this study and understand the links between the KTN and the platform.

As part of the evaluation, we would like to invite you to take part in a short online survey to help us understand your level of engagement with the research agenda of the platform, and what impact this has had on your own organisation.

This research is being undertaken by an independent research company, Ipsos MORI. You may have already been approached by them to take part in a telephone interview if you have put forward an application for funding through Innovate UK, or are a key stakeholder for the platform. This survey is a separate piece of research, covering different aspects, and we are still very interested in your views.

Please be assured that all information gathered will be treated confidentially and stored securely. Your responses will only be reported in aggregate and will not be attributed to you. As a thank you for taking part, we would also share with you a summary report outlining the key findings from the research.

To complete the survey and share your views, please go to the link below:
