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.

Transport KTN supporting Marine Industry Leadership Council

The Transport KTN, Technology Strategy Board and BIS are supporting the Marine Industry Leadership Council (MILC) and the UK marine related industries to develop a road map and UK capability study that seeks to maximise economic growth from within the UK. This work follows on from a recent BIS Marine Strategic Framework for UK growth road map.

An invitation only workshop on the 27th June 2011 will refresh the existing MILC roadmap with the aim to identify future UK Marine research, technology and innovation applications ands needs across all sectors of the marine industry. The roadmap will be based on the views of a range of experts from all aspects of the marine industry (including SMEs), academia and the public sector and will play a significant part in informing a future programme of investment in underpinning technology and innovation areas.

This work will give participants a good opportunity to directly influence the future direction of investment in this vital area. Participants will also benefit from exposure to the views and insights of a group of senior peers from across the sector, and gain exposure to the highly regarded road mapping technique of the Institute for Manufacturing.

If you would like to be considered to attend this workshop, please email rob.furlong@transportktn.org, providing relevant background details.
