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.

Adrian Vinsome has been appointed as the interim Director of the Transport Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) and will take up his new role from 1st November 2013.  Currently Head of Programmes for Cenex, the Centre of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell Technologies, Adrian is taking over from Neil Ridley, who is moving to a new role as Director of Business Development with the Transport Systems Catapult, the newly established technology and innovation centre backed by the Technology Strategy Board that has been formed with the help of the KTN.

On his new appointment, Adrian says,

"I am looking forward to working with the high calibre team of individuals that form the backbone of the Transport KTN.  There is a lot of interest and enthusiasm in the wider transport context at the moment and helping to facilitate awareness of the opportunities for both funding and collaboration across sector boundaries should be rewarding" 

Neil Ridley, exiting Director, said;

The Transport KTN has been in existence for just three years, during which time it has made a significant contribution to stimulating the sharing of ideas and solutions across the entire transport industry.  With Adrian's experience and the backing of the other team members I am confident that it will continue to go from strength to strength.
