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.

SBRI call on Multi-Source Intelligence opens 7th Dec 2010

SBRI - Collaborative Multi-Source Intelligence Working Environment

The Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) is the Ministry of Defence’s gateway for UK industry, academia and innovators to help ensure our Armed Forces are best equipped now and in the future.

CDE provides a rapid response to anyone with an innovative idea, potentially supporting them with a range of advice, assistance and research funding.

This is a call for research proposals on novel approaches to collaborative fusion and analysis using multiple different sources of intelligence.

This call will probably fund a number of short (~3 month) Proof of Principle studies to investigate innovative approaches.

Successful technologies may then be considered for support and further development. Multi-disciplinary proposals are particularly encouraged, including but not limited to psychology, sociology, business intelligence, mathematics and statistics, where there is an opportunity for solutions, methodologies or theories employed in other applications to be used for intelligence collaboration for the first time.

Two specific challenges have been identified as key priorities.

Challenge 1 - Collaborative analysis models, tools and services - To develop the understanding of team sense-making concepts and processes, together with applications and services which offer support to those processes.

Challenge 2 - Geo-temporally enabled network analysis - To develop novel methods to understand how networks develop, function and evolve, through integrated analysis of relational (network graph), spatial and temporal data.

Techniques and methods are also required for visualisation and utilisation of this data in a predictive manner.

The brief will be available here after the briefing event on the 7th Dec 2010.

The call for proposals will close 1200 (noon) on Tuesday 25 January 2011.
