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.

ADBA R&D Forum

This event is organised by ADBA R&D Forum in partnership with the BBSRC Anaerobic Digestion Network and the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN). 
Bridging the gap between industry and academia, this event is the best way to learn how research can increase your competitive edge. With falling government funding, the AD sector has never been under more pressure to improve operational performance, manage environmental practice and to find ways of maximising the energy and fertiliser outputs of the process as well as looking to create newer, higher-value products. ADBA’s 2015 R&D Forum will bring together the AD industry, academia and the public sector to understand how existing R&D can help achieve these goals and how R&D could best support these goals in future. 
This is the event to attend if you want to hear about the latest AD research, influence R&D spend, share knowledge with academia and get answers to your questions; it is a must for those involved in engineering, operating, developing or designing AD plants.

Call for Papers 
This is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of your research, expertise and achievements to a high profile anaerobic digestion (AD) audience of academics and key industry figures at the ADBA R&D Forum in partnership with the BBSRC Anaerobic Digestion Network and the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN). 
You are invited to submit a proposal to be presented at the R&D Forum that is on the theme of any of the following topics: 
1. “Beyond Biogas-Moving towards a Bio-refinery” – Adaptation of AD technologies in order to meet the future demands of bio-refining for a broad spectrum of bioresources. 
2. “Digestate utilisation and nutrient/product recovery”. 
3. Research that has particular industrial relevance. 
What are we looking for? 
Case studies: Are you an AD researcher who works with AD businesses to solve problems or improve plant efficiency? 
Or a business that has successfully partnered with a university or R&D business and has seen demonstrable improvements in AD plant performance, perhaps through increasing output, or reducing operational costs? 
Are you a researcher or business that is working on a new technology that could be complementary to AD? For example making concentrated fertilisers from digestate or coupling with algae production? 
If yes, then send your proposal to Edmund Gavaghan, Event Producer, ADBA, 
E: edmund.gavaghan@adbioresources.org, or call 0203 176 4415 if you have any questions. 
Deadline for submission is 12 January 2015
