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.

Talking About Flooding – 14th March, University of Oxford


The UK is under constant risk of floods. In order effectively to manage this risk it is important that knowledge and information about flooding and flood processes is exchanged between scientists involved in cutting-edge flood research, and decision makers responsible for the welfare of their communities. Supported by NERC, the Environment Agency and three county councils, Project FOSTER has successfully developed and evaluated communication tools to facilitate this knowledge exchange.


Key stakeholders from the scientific and practitioner communities are invited to join us for a free one-day event focused on communicating and exchanging flood-related knowledge. Through a combination of short presentations, facilitated discussions, and interactive workshops this event will:


  • Enable the project team to share some of the key findings from Project FOSTER
  • Enable stakeholders to explore some of the challenges and opportunities for exchanging knowledge between flood scientists and decision makers in Local Authorities



Who will be there?

Invited delegates will include experts and practitioners from the field of flooding and flood risk management including flood scientists, local government officers and councillors, policy-making organisations, consultants and businesses interested in flood management.



The morning session will feature a series of brief presentations by flood scientists, Local Authority decision-makers and government policy makers, followed by an open discussion. During the afternoon delegates will engage in facilitated workshops to explore key questions arising from the morning session around flood communication opportunities and challenges.


Further information and registration

Further information about the event, together with a link for registration, can be found on the conference website or email Alison Stokes, Project FOSTER Research Associate.
