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 ICT 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.

Copernicus Relay EOI - Deadline: 23rd September

The European Commission is inviting Expressions of Interest for the (unpaid) opportunity to become a Copernicus Relay.

The Network of Copernicus Relays is a concept and process whereby the Commission will work closely with different stakeholders to foster the use of Copernicus data and information with one or more Relays per Copernicus participating country.

The Relays are to be recognised by users as dedicated representatives and permanent interlocutors on Copernicus, acting as principal helpdesks/information points on the Programme. They will provide stakeholders, the general public and experienced users with technical assistance and foster awareness activities. A bottom-up approach is also foreseen since the structure should be perceived as a user-feedback mechanism to the Commission services.

The Relays will act as multipliers, developing initiatives to reach two different sets of objectives:

1. To promote Copernicus as a sustainable source of free, open and reliable information to meet the needs of local public services.

2. To promote Copernicus as sustainable source of full, free, open, and reliable data for the development of environmental services with high commercial potential by local entrepreneurs.

Deadline: 23rd September
