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.

On June 15, the U.S. Federal Register posted OSTP's Request for Information (RFI) on the development of this Plan, which will build upon the priorities and supporting actions identified in the 2014 National Plan for Civil Earth Observations. Through it, OSTP aims to advance U.S. capabilities to ensure stable, continuous, and coordinated Earth observations for the benefit of society.

The RFI is publically accessible via the link below: 


OSTP welcomes input from Earth observations operators and users as it develops the Plan, and encourages responses via the RFI's electronic template, which should be sent to env_energy@ostp.eop.gov.

Comments of up to approximately 2,000 characters per question are requested and must be received by 11:59 PM (U.S. Eastern Time), July 15, 2016, to be considered. The public input provided will inform OSTP as it works with Federal agencies and other stakeholders to develop this Plan.
