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.

Endorsement by Governing Board gives Catapult the Green Light

The plans to establish the Transport Systems Catapult continue to take shape.

In January the Governing Board of the Technology Strategy Board endorsed the case for investing in the Catapult - paving the way for setting up the legal entity, recruiting key executives, identifying a location and planning all the other elements needed to set up a world-leading centre in its field.

Specifically, preparatory work will continue on the development of a national transport systems modeling facility and a virtual test environment, where the UK’s world-class physical testing capability can be linked to digital models.

Find out more and ask your questions at the interactive webinar

The 5th interactive update webinar will be run on 5th February, in which Daniel Ruiz (TSB) and Neil Ridley (Transport KTN) will give an update on the Catapult, invite your questions and provide answers.

There are a limited number of places available, so please reserve your place as soon as possible by clicking the button below.
