The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) was established by Innovate UK to foster better links between business, science, and creativity in order to nurture, develop and scale up innovation. The KTN’s technology expertise is broad in scope and ranges from defence and aerospace to the creative industries, the build environment to biotechnology and robotics. We help Innovate UK with scoping of new grant call areas, and disseminating information on current and upcoming calls which provides access to alternative funding for business growth and technology development.
We foster better collaboration by connecting our members and providing a range of services and support activities including: linking to expertise on technology, projects, research and markets; identifying public and private sector funding (UK and EU); helping build business cases for funding and investment; investor readiness and due diligence preparation leading to introductions to our network of investors.
