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.

Important statements on EU funding

The UK Government and the European Commission confirmed earlier in the summer that the UK EU referendum result had no immediate effect on UK organisations applying to or participating in Horizon 2020 and that they could continue to apply to the programme in the usual way.

Statement from Jo Johnson, MP:  https://www.gov.uk/government/news/statement-on-higher-education-and-research-following-the-eu-referendum

Statement from European Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en/news/outcome-referendum-united-kingdom

In addition to these statements, we are pleased to inform you that the HM Treasury (the UK finance ministry) guaranteed that all UK organisations bidding individually or as members of consortia for Horizon 2020 projects, while the UK is still a member of the EU, will have certainty over future funding with the Treasury underwriting the payments of such awards, even when specific projects continue beyond the UK’s departure from the EU.
