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.

Electronics & Sensors for Aerospace: #HITEA3 Consortia Building Event

In June 2015, the Game-changing technologies for aerospace competition opens and will see an investment of £10m in collaborative research and development and feasibility studies to accelerate the commercialisation of highly innovative technologies for civil aerospace.

The competition is looking for projects that offer solutions to key aerospace industry challenges and for opportunities to bring in technologies and capabilities from outside the traditional aerospace sector. 

Of interest are technology solutions which can provide a benefit to areas such as:

  • New manufacturing solutions that enhance cost effectiveness and affordability and/or support increasing rates of production;
  • Improved competiveness through novel or advanced materials and associated processing technologies;
  • Technologies that enable improvements to overall vehicle performance and efficiency;
  • Reduced cost of vehicle ownership through novel technologies or process solutions;
  • New modeling and simulation techniques.

KTN has organised this free event on 3rd June 2015 at the RAF Museum in London, to bring together the Sensors and Electronics Communities with the Aerospace Community to address these challenges, discuss requirements and form consortia for the competition.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Brian Allen, QinetiQ
  • Phil McGoldrick, Safran Group
  • Innovate UK

There is an opportunity for organisations to outline their capability and/or innovation needs by giving a short pitch at this event.
