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.

Agenda for Environmental road mapping for Sustainable freight Workshop

This workshop, titled “Environmental road mapping for Sustainable Freight” aims to follow on from the Technology Strategy Board Informed Logistics intervention.

By discussing the challenges and barriers faced for a successful environmental journey, the workshop will investigate and prioritise the environmental issues for multi-modal sustainable freight.


A copy of the agenda can be downloaded using this link


We have confirmed presentations from :


Green Logistics project : Research into the sustainability of logistics systems and supply chains.  As concern for the environment rises, companies must take more account of the external costs of logistics. Find out how this research project is examining ways of reducing these externalities and achieving a more sustainable balance between economic, environmental and social objectives,  focusing on the environment, climate change, air quality, noise pollution. 


Freightwize project : The overall objective of this EU 6th Framework Programme project is to support the modal shift of cargo flows from road to intermodal transport using road in combination with short sea shipping, inland waterways and rail. Hear about this project, and how it is supporting the co-operation of the transport freight and logistics sector in order to develop and demonstrate suitable intermodal transport solutions in a range of business cases.


Axillium Consulting Ltd : Hear about the next generation composite material technologies from the Aerospace and Automotive sectors and how these environmentally friendly materials can be introduced and used within the Freight and logistics sector.


This workshop will establish “What is next”, with input into the KTN transport roadmap, which will be used to develop a long-term vision and adaptive action plan for transport sustainability and policy.
