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.

The Technology Strategy Board and UK Trade & Investment have announced a joint venture which sees the two organisations unite the highly successful Innovate and TechWorld events. The new, multi-sector, networking event ‘Innovate UK’ - running from 11-13 March 2013 - will provide opportunities for technology companies looking to accelerate their growth through innovation, international trade and investment.

Innovate UK will bring together 4,000 people from UK and international business, Government and academia, with the aim of accelerating UK economic growth by stimulating business-led innovation and opening up international trade opportunities. 

Iain Gray, Chief Executive of the Technology Strategy Board said: “Both Innovate and TechWorld have long established track records of individual success, so we’re really pleased to be uniting them under the single brand, Innovate UK. By inviting businesses across the UK to showcase their innovations and mix with experts in prolific technology innovation areas we hope Innovate UK will become an even greater show of the UK’s entrepreneurial might, on the global stage.”

Nick Baird, Chief Executive of UK Trade & Investment said: "Over the last two years, businesses that attended Innovate and TechWorld collectively generated over £70m worth of UK trade; 65% of them identified new business opportunities and 77% said they learned something that would help them to innovate. By bringing the events together we hope to deliver even more success for UK businesses whether by helping them grow through innovation, international trade and investment or collaborative opportunities.”

Innovate UK will include one to one meeting opportunities, seminars, workshops, an exhibition and keynote sessions featuring leading business and ministerial representatives. During the three days, businesses can share knowledge, access expert advice, showcase innovation and find collaborative partners.  

There will be a limited number of exhibition spaces on offer for innovative SMEs to take at minimal cost. Find out more here.

Innovate UK takes place on 11-13 March, 2013, at the Business Design Centre, London.

Tickets are £125 (including VAT).
