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 sustainability 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.

Virtual Joint Centres with Brazil, China and India in Agricultural Nitrogen

The deadline for applications is 22nd July 2015. 
As part of the Newton Fund BBSRC, NERC and partners in Brazil, China and India are inviting applications to enable bilateral research activities in the form of Virtual Joint Centres of up to three years in duration, with one of Brazil, China or India.
The purpose of the call is to establish a number of Virtual Joint Centres to explore ways to sustain or improve current levels of crop production with lower energy inputs and reduced environmental impacts.  Virtual Joint Centres should enable innovative research which will lead to the production of high yields of crops with lower inputs of nitrogen fertiliser. 
A Virtual Joint Centre should include a core research programme supported by a range of partnering activities.  Where applicable, project partners should align existing resources and infrastructure to augment the research programme thereby building new links or strengthening existing links.  The output from the Virtual Joint Centre should be the delivery of exciting new research and strengthened bilateral strategic relationships between the UK and partner countries.
