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.

Paralympic challenges to transport have included the change in demographic of travellers: not just in diversity but also increases in background demand due to schools and offices returning after the summer break. 

Capturing the lessons has started.  The Olympic Delivery Authority’s transport team held a big post-Games ‘wash-up’ meeting on 13th September.  The general feeling is that everything went better than expected. 

There are things the ODA can do to hand over the baton to the rest of the transport relay team.  For example, the ODA and others have generated vast amounts of data.  My understanding is, they are not contracted to harvest and process these data.  Organisations like the Technology Strategy Board (TSB), DfT and BIS could take responsibility for establishing mechanisms assuring the legacy of London 2012’s transport success.  The next leg of the race has started…
