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.

RNLI Lifeboat Decommissioning Challenge in partnership with LoToNo

What would you do with 86 search-and-rescue lifeboats, including 172 high-powered engines, 86 radar systems, 954 tonnes of composite materials and 43 tonnes of plastic? 
 
Over the next 10 years, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution will decommission three different classes of lifeboat.  The potential to recover, reuse, recycle and reimagine these lifeboats and their components is huge.
 
This is a call to experts and specialists to submit commercial solutions and innovative proposals for lifeboat decommissioning, including hard-to-dispose-of materials like composites.
 
Working with LoToNo, we’re inviting engineers, technologists, researchers, designers and waste specialists from across Europe to work on this challenge.  This could be the start of a commercial relationship for you with the RNLI, and might offer business solutions for other industry sectors.
 
Viw the Challange Overwiev for more details.
