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.

Franco-British Symposium on Composite Materials to kick-start and reinforce collaborations in composites

The Department for Science and Technology (DST) of the French Embassy in London, in collaboration with the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) Composite Materials Group, are to host a two day symposium on composite materials that will bring together stakeholders from the composites industry from the public and private sectors of France and the UK.

As leaders in the field of composites, the organisers consider there are numerous opportunities for collaborations between French and British organisations.

The Franco-British Symposium on Composite Materials, to be held at The Residence of France, 58 Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7JT, on 28-29 April 2015, also offers opportunities to learn about the research, technology translation and industrial challenges in both countries; share views about supply chain issues in composites; for identifying synergies and to explore bilateral cooperation for creating Franco-British bids for European projects.


Composite applications in transport

Speakers currently lined up in the symposium agenda include Pascal Dublineau of Airbus talking on composite applications in Airbus, Mr Robert Crow of Jaguar Land Rover on Carbon fibre applications in mass-produced automotive structures, Dr John Marshall of Rolls Royce plc on Innovations in composites at Rolls-Royce and Dr Daniel Cadet of Alstom Transportation on Issues relating to introduction of composites in the railway sector.
