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.

Remanufacturing Mission to China May 2016, report published - KTN

”Remanufacturing is emerging as an important strategy for overcoming our unsustainable production and consumption habits, whilst simultaneously unlocking economic value in the recovery of end of life products,” says Dr David Stewart from HSSMI. ”China has recognised this and as such, has set out plans to develop the sector to be 10 times its current size over the next 5 years. The UK is still scoping out what sort of action should be taken to help nurture the UK remanufacturing industry in line with our wider economy.”


Dr David Stewart from HSSMI along with other UK delegates from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, British Standards Institution, Oakdene Hollins, The University of Brighton, Zero Waste Scotland and Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) joined a trade mission to China in May 2016 as part of a project sponsored by the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office.


The KTN was a key participant on the mission with Ben Peace leading on all activities involved on their behave.  He was instrumental in provided support throughout the project including helping to shape the proposal; disseminating the outputs, introducing the participants for the China Mission and commenting on drafts of the final report.
