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.

KTP seminar outline


Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) embed strategic capability within an organisation whilst delivering immediate and longer term benefits to the business, to their academic partner and to the associate running the project.  
What will you learn?
Come along to this seminar to hear from the people involved what benefits have been achieved; why KTP works; and how it might help to deliver your needs.
Who will benefit from attending?
  • Businesses especially - KTPs can help to address key strategic challenges within your business and embed new capability to improve productivity and performance 
  • Academics already working collaboratively with business seeking to identify ways of taking research outputs through to commercialisation.  
  • Anyone currently engaged with KTP who wants to share their experience.
“Without the involvement of the KTP programme, we would still be talking about it. Having someone working on the project full time means that the KTP forces you to give it the attention it requires.” - Dave Jesse, MD, Flight Data Services
“We can more confidently carry out anything from concept design to development of products five to ten years away. It has left us more open minded towards these projects and know that any future product will include tools developed from the KTP programme.” - Jaime Turner, Technical Director, Structural Metal Decks 
Hosted by Debbie Buckley-Golder, Head of Knowledge Exchange, Technology Strategy Board, this session will also include insights from KTP award winners encompassing Associates, Academics and Business Participants as well as from Advisers that support the KTP process.
