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.

KTN supporting Bristol workshop on local low carbon transport and power solutions using hydrogen and fuel cells

As part of Bristol’s celebrations as European Green Capital 2015 - on Wednesday 20 May 2015 KTN is supporting the free open workshop, Delivering local low carbon transport and power solutions through hydrogen and fuel cells: opportunities for the public sector and supply chain.

Bristol is currently celebrating a year as European Green Capital, promoting the city as a leader in creating healthier and happier cities. It claims to use less energy per household than any major UK city, with residents saving about £150 each on their heating bills since 2005. It also boasts the highest cycling rate of any major UK city, three and a half times the average.

 

Funding and business opportunities in the fuel cells and hydrogen 'space'

The workshop at Mshed, Wapping Road, Princes Wharf, will outline funding and business opportunities in the fuel cells and hydrogen space, highlight the benefits of using fuel cells and hydrogen in heat, power and transport applications and will offer an date on hydrogen infrastructure and roll-out development, and how markets are developing.

The intended audience is supply chain companies - to be able to learn more about the opportunities offered by hydrogen and fuel cells; and also local authorities and other public procurers - in order to deliver local objectives in transport, power and heat sectors, such as those linked to carbon reduction energy efficiency, local power generation, and environmental quality.

It will also be an opportunity to help the hydrogen and fuel cell sector reach out to potential new markets and stimulate sector development and growth.

The event will include a presentation by Chris Bagley, KTN’s Head of Energy, on "How the Knowledge Transfer Network can help you access UK and European Funding”.

Delivering local low carbon transport and power solutions through hydrogen and fuel cells: opportunities for the public sector and supply chain is being delivered by South West Environmental iNet, the Association of Public Sector Excellence, the Knowledge Transfer Network and the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association.

If you would like to attend, you will need to register via Eventbrite. Please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
