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.

Transport KTN guest posts series on the Olympic Games transport legacy

Will London face melt-down?

There has been much speculation about how London will cope with the additional burden of up to 3million additional passenger journeys per day on peak days during the Olympics.

Guest posts on the Transport KTN

Next month, we will start a series of guest posts on the Transport KTN's Intelligent Mobility group, about the UK's response to the transport challenges of the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.  

What's happening?

These posts will encompass a variety of Olympic-related transport themes covering a wide range of topics from transport integration, movement management, data and intelligence, travelers' tools, and social media.  The articles will start in March with the run-up (sorry about the pun!) to the Olympics, and the final one is planned for October, with a review and appraisal of how it all went.

Don't miss out

Make sure you tune in (and follow us @transportktn on Twitter) to get an insight into the innovative solutions, successful implementation and – almost most importantly – the legacy for transport that these Games bring to the UK.

If you would like to feature as a guest blogger on the Transport KTN, we'd love to hear from you! Please get in touch with your proposal by emailing Tessa Darley.
