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.

Unique opportunity for UK aerospace, defence and civils suppliers to explore problems in the buoyant rail sector

The UK rail sector is seeing unprecedented levels of investment with billions being spent every year improving the railways.  The high level of investment is matched by a desire for improved efficiency and much of this efficiency will come through innovation. 

 

The sector is actively seeking solutions to problems which may already have been solved by other sectors, and problems to be aired at the next Unlocking Innovation (in Rail) workshop will cover the more efficient and safe working of high output plant, as well as a look at head up displays in trains. 

 

The free to attend workshop will be a unique opportunity to explore and discuss the problem first hand with representatives from Network Rail and Virgin Trains, and is just one of the means by which it is becoming easier to engage with the rail sector. 

 

The workshop will be held on the 10th July in Melton Mowbray near Leicester.  More information and registration instructions can be found here.  Any enquiries should be addressed to the Railway Industry Association at innovate@riagb.org.uk.
