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.

Webinar - Smart, Green and Integrated Transport Challenge - Horizon 2020
On 8th December Louise Mothersole - the UK National contact point for Horizon2020 - presented a webinar for KTN on The SME Instrument. In her 36 minute presentation, Louise laid out the steps companies should take to best demonstrate their credibility and ambition when applying for this Horizon 2020 fund to boost the competitiveness of SMEs in transport. To view the presentation click here.
Over the next few months, in collaboration with the Knowledge Transfer Network, Louise will outline the opportunities available to UK organisations through a series of such webinars on applying for Horizon 2020 funding - with the next scheduled for 6 February 2015 on the larger Mobility for Growth programme.
To support the preparation of proposals, the Transport Directorate of the European Commission's Research and Innovation Directorate-General is organising an Information Day on Monday 2 February 2015 from 9 AM till 6 PM (CET) in the Charlemagne building, rue de la Loi 170, Brussels. The aim of the day is to inform potential participants about the next round of calls under the Smart, Green and Integrated Transport Challenge of the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for 2015.
Anyone can register for the event, but to save you the time and expense of travelling to Belgium Innovate UK’s National Contact Point for Transport, Louise Mothersole will be going and returning to tell us all about it in this webinar.
These sessions will deliver brief presentations of the surface transport, aviation and cross-cutting topics of the Transport challenge Work Programme for 2015, along with information on the Evaluation Guidelines and Rules for Participation covering all aspects from the submission of a proposal to the signature of a grant agreement.
