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.

Harnessing the power of hydrogen

The Inorganic Solid State & Materials Research Group is using nanotechnology to try to find a way of turning the universe’s most abundant element, Hydrogen, into a viable source of energy.   When hydrogen is combusted in air, it binds with oxygen to create energy alongside a solitary byproduct: water. Being a relatively cheap and very green source of power, hydrogen...

New solar cell technology cranks up efficiency

With the creation of a 3-D nanocone-based solar cell platform, a team led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Jun Xu has boosted the light-to-power conversion efficiency of photovoltaics by nearly 80 percent.   The technology substantially overcomes the problem of poor transport of charges generated by solar photons. These charges -- negative electrons and positive holes --...

Hydrogen fuel technology gets boost from low-cost efficient catalyst

Scientists have engineered a cheap, abundant alternative to the expensive platinum catalyst and coupled it with a light-absorbing electrode to make hydrogen fuel from sunlight and water.   The discovery is an important development in the worldwide effort to mimic the way plants make fuel from sunlight, a key step in creating a green energy economy. It was reported last week in...

Putting a fuel cell 'in your pocket'

Technology using catalysts which make hydrogen from formic acid could eventually replace lithium batteries and power a host of mobile devices. Edman Tsang of Oxford University’s Department of Chemistry and colleagues are developing new catalysts which can produce hydrogen at room temperature without the need for solvents or additives.   Their initial results, reported in...

Nanoengineers develop novel method leading to more efficient fuel cell applications

Engineers are using nanotechnology to increase the efficiency and enhance the performance of fuel cells, which could boost renewable energy options and reduce toxic emissions.   Current fuel cell efficiencies are significantly limited, in part due to an inhibitive reaction from a byproduct. The UC San Diego researchers have synthesized bimetallic nanoparticles (NPs), which are...

First practical nanogenerator produces electricity with pinch of the fingers

After six years of intensive effort, scientists are reporting development of the first commercially viable nanogenerator, a flexible chip that can use body movements — a finger pinch now en route to a pulse beat in the future — to generate electricity. Speaking here today at the 241st National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, they described boosting the...

Researchers use river water and salty ocean water to generate electricity

Stanford researchers have developed a rechargeable battery that uses freshwater and seawater to create electricity. Aided by nanotechnology, the battery employs the difference in salinity between fresh and saltwater to generate a current. A power station might be built wherever a river flows into the ocean.   Stanford researchers have developed a battery that takes advantage...
