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.

Department for Transport T-TRIG competition - June 2015
The Department for Transport’s (DfT) Transport Technology Research Innovation Grant (T-TRIG) will fund transport research projects that will help progress potentially innovative ideas for transport.
T-TRIG will result in the award of fully-funded grants of up to £25,000 to research novel ideas for improving transport in the UK, and this time provides a special incentive to smaller operators of a 30% advance payment option.
DfT said it expects to award grants of up to £25k to four projects that can start from 1 September 2015. These projects should be innovative and focused on science, engineering or technology that is relevant to improving transport in the UK.
Final project report’s will be due by the 27 November 2015.
As an additional incentive for small businesses to apply, this time DfT has offered to fund an advance of 30% of the grant before funded projects start up.
Briefing webinars DfT will outline the aims for the competition, plus there’ll be opportunities to quiz those involved in the funding call in order to help focus great ideas into applications that match its requirements.
