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.

Environment committee draft report issued on van CO2

The European Parliament’s Environment Committee draft report on van CO2 has been issued by rapporteur Martin Callanan MEP. Mr Callanan has not proposed to make changes to the Commission’s short term target of 175g/km CO2, phased in from 2014 to 2016. The Commission’s longer term 2020 target has been amended from 135g/km to 150g/km. The report proposes that maximum excess emission penalties for those who go over the targets are reduced from €120 to €95. There are no changes proposed to the low volume producers’ derogation threshold, which stands at 22,000 vehicles in the Commission’s original text. Mr Callanan has inserted a proposed amendment to introduce speed limiters for vans at 120km/hr from 2015. The Environment Committee will debate the draft report at its 3 May meeting in Brussels, the deadline for amendments stands at 19 May, with the Committee scheduled to vote at its 28 September meeting.
