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.

Visit our people pages to connect directly with expertise in your sector.

Hi Tessa,

It says that you have to register before Wednesday to be able to enter the competition.
I don't see where. The downloaded pdf document does not mention a registration email address.
Please let me know how to comply and proceed.

Hi Ralph
If you click the link above to the TSB's website, on the right hand side of the page at http://www.innovateuk.org/content/competition/low-carbon-vehicles-the-road-to-ma­rket2.ashx , you'll see it says under Registration: "Registration is required to enter this competition. Please note that registration will close one week before the competition application deadline."
As you work down the right hand side of the page, it has "Download the brief", "Application process and supporting downloads", and finally, "Competition registration" (just above the competitions RSS feed subscription).
Click on "register for the application process" and follow the onscreen prompts.
Registering your intent to submit an application will ensure that you have until the close of EOI submissions next week to complete your application for the collaborative r&d funds for this competition. Once you have created your EOI application, you can keep updating your online version until the deadline, though we'd recommend that you don't wait until the 11th hour, in case of technical glitches!
You may find this document http://bit.ly/tktn_guide_crd_comp handy - it's the Transport KTN's guide to applying for TSB collaborative R&D competitions.
Good luck!
