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.

Offroad scoping workshop - some spaces remain

How could an injection of funds accelerate development of off-highway vehicles?

Join us to scope a new collaborative R&D competition in off-highway vehicles, from the Technology Strategy Board.

This half-day workshop will be held from 9:30am-2pm (incl. registration and networking lunch) on 2nd June, at the Crowne Plaza, NEC, Birmingham.

The Technology Strategy Board is researching the needs and opportunities for a market intervention around the Off-Highway Vehicle sector, and would like to invite innovative UK companies and research organisations to a half-day workshop who are either

  • Working in the off-highway vehicle sector, or
  •  Are active in other automotive-related supply-chains but would like to collaborate with the off-highway sector

The UK off-highway vehicle manufacturing sector is already very active with several well known names producing and developing their vehicles in the UK and home & export markets. With the current & future challenges facing the sector, there are good opportunities to collaborate with technology developers in road vehicle, advance materials, and other transport sectors.

Who should attend

Technology companies and researchers from any of the following sectors (and beyond) are encouraged to attend this workshop to scope this competition:

  • Off-Highway Vehicle producers
  • On-vehicle technology supply-chain to the above
  • Technology developers from other transport sectors, e.g. on-road, who have technology which could be ported into an off-highway vehicle application
  • Developers of off-vehicle technology which could improve the machine efficiency of off-highway vehicles

About the workshop

Register now to attend this half-day off-highway competition scoping workshop, which will consist of:

  • A description of the competition scope as it currently stands
  • Opportunities for you to input your views on the challenges facing the OH vehicle sector, as well as
  • the opportunities in the sector for UK plc, 
  • Opportunities for quality networking
  • An outline (aimed at newcomers to Technology Strategy Board CR&D funding) of how the competition process runs, and how the grant funding is delivered.
