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.

Data.Space 2017 - Call for abstracts, deadline 20th October

Data.Space 2017 - 1st & 2nd February 2017, Glasgow, Scotland
A global space revolution is being fuelled by the exploration and exploitation of new data sets enabled by small and nanosatellites to deliver data products in response to user needs, and for the betterment of life on Earth.  This data is yielding insight into corporate policy and industrial activity around the globe; from corporate supply chains to oil production, and onto shipping and maritime activity and so much more.
To create a network and focus for this expanding activity, a 2-day international conference will be held at the Technology & Innovation Centre in Glasgow and will focus on the use of such satellite data and information to developing solutions.  It will bring together data users from across the economy with data generators from the space sector, as well as pooling innovators and entrepreneurs from academia and the commercial sector with regulators, legislators, and venture capitalists.
Call for abstracts for Data.Space 2017 is now open.  Submissions are invited which focus on using data derived from new space technology in response to industry and user needs from the following key areas:
  • Energy
  • Blue Economy
  • Resilience & Sustainability
  • Future of Data & Space
In each of these key areas we also encourage abstract submission from those outside the space sector who have identified industry challenges that are hindering growth or economic development.  Deadline for submissions is 20th October 2016.
