The Knowledge Transfer Network

KTN is the UK’s Innovation Network. We connect people to speed up innovation, solve problems and find markets for new ideas.

From the discovery of DNA to making blockbuster movies, from inventing the world wide web to creating the best in user experience design, the UK has earned its reputation for world-leading creativity and inventiveness. We’re helping secure the UK’s future by playing to those strengths. Our primary role at KTN is to nurture, develop and scale up innovation within business, connecting you with the wider knowledge economy.

Working with large and small companies, government agencies and research organisations, with tech hubs and startups, public funding bodies, VCs and private investors, KTN has built a unique network that helps enterprising people and companies reach the full potential of their innovative capabilities.

Established by Innovate UK to build better links between science, creativity and business, the Knowledge Transfer Network has specialist teams covering all significant sectors of the economy, from defence and aerospace to the creative industries, the built environment to biotechnology and robotics. Our expertise in connecting sectors, disciplines and skills with the right collaborations and business approach is what helps unlock the tremendous hidden value in people and companies.

In the last five years, KTN has helped thousands of businesses secure funding to drive innovation. And we support them throughout their business cycle to see that investment through to success.

KTN plays a key supporting role in the commercialisation of synthetic biology through its synthetic biology group, which provides news and funding opportunities, facilitates networking and supports the Synthetic Biology Leadership Council.
