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 Materials 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.

Learn about British Council - CONACyT calls within the Newton Fund in Mexico

The British Council recently opened two calls in Mexico under the Newton Fund along with their Mexican partners CONACyT.

The British Council's lead for the Newton Fund in Mexico, Liliana Carral, would like to invite researchers to attend one of three workshops she will host in the UK during July and August. The workshops will enable you to identify opportunities for collaboration in Mexico, will help you get a better understanding of the open calls, and will be a unique opportunity to have your questions answered.

What is the Newton Fund?

The Newton Fund promotes the economic development and welfare in partnering countries, through science and innovation partnerships. It aims to strengthen science and innovation capacity and unlock further funding to support poverty alleviation. It is managed by UK's Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, and delivered through 15 UK delivery partners, including the British Council, in collaboration with 16 partner countries. 


Who could benefit from these calls?

The workshops will cover the Researcher Links and Institutional Links programmes. These are relevant to:

  • Resesarcher Links - Principal investigators interested in establishing or developing links with Mexico based in non-for profit institutions.

  • Institutional Links - Principal investigators willing to develop proof of concept for new technologies with Mexico based in non-for profit institutions. Associate partners could indirectly benefit from this call, whether it's researchers based on for profit or non-for profit institutions like technology transfer offices, catapult centres or business.
