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.

Find out what the Transport Systems Catapult is all about!

The Transport KTN-hosted webinar on Friday featured Daniel Ruiz, project manager at the newly kick-started Transport Systems Catapult, and was ably chaired by our very own Neil Ridley.  Delegates were treated to a live video feed of Daniel and Neil, concurrently showing the presentation that Daniel was describing, and participants were able to ask questions and interact via live chat. There were lots of questions and interesting discussions from our online audience - so many that Neil and Daniel didn't have time to get through them all!  They are currently working through these and we will be posting them in the Q&A section on the Catapult Group.

Resources available
  • You can access the recording of the webinar by clicking here.
  • A version of Daniel's presentation is also available to download here.
  • All relevant documentation is available from our document library here.
What next?

There were a lot of high quality and thought-provoking questions; these will be collated, synthesised and posted, along with responses, on the Q&A section. You can see the questions and answers that were covered in the webinar by watching the recording.

A verbatim list of all the questions will also shortly be made available via this article.

We will run another interactive webinar once all the survey responses have been collated, so don't forget to make your online submission by 29th June 2012, and sign up to the Transport Systems Catapult group to find out as soon as we release info about the next webinar.
