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.

Attend the 2nd Annual Symposium on Tackling No-Fault Found in Maintenance Engineering

Join this stimulating Symposium on 28th May at the Shrivenham Campus where you will be joined by leading experts dealing with commercial and engineering challenges to resolve NFF.


The existence of the No Fault Found phenomenon has had a definite negative impact upon critical system stakeholder requirements, which at the top level, often includes system’s safety, dependability and lifecycle costs. It is therefore essential to prevent NFF events or (at the very least) reduce the impact it has on the business operation. To deliver stakeholder requirements efficiently aspects such as suitable knowledge and technical competence must be promoted, enabling domain experts to acquire additional skills for long-term professional activities. Issues on safety performance and cost cannot be compromised; consequently, it is essential to discuss topics on information quality (when data is presented to the operators) response times (for early symptoms of failure) and knowledge ambiguity (on operation and maintenance of equipment) of the test procedures and practices in place.


The day will provide plenty of questioning and networking opportunities, together with an open discussion forum. Throughout the day, key themes will be identified as being the most influential contributors to the NFF problem and questions will be posed to the audience on the future direction for research.
