Presentation

The KTN is the UK’s innovation network. It brings together businesses, entrepreneurs, academics and funders to develop new products, processes and services.

It does this by initiating, facilitating and building the following collaborations:

Strategic Collaborations: gathering and analysing information on markets, the technologies and other factors affecting them; working with industrial and research partners to develop technology roadmaps and appropriate innovation strategies

 Creative Collaborations: Bringing ‘problem holders’ and those with innovation challenges together with the businesses and researchers who have the talent and technology to develop viable solutions.

Cross-sector Collaborations: Encouraging those from different research fields and industrial sectors to share knowledge, generate commercial ideas and apply expertise in new ways.

Business Collaborations: Taking those with new ideas and technologies to the clients, distributors and platforms that can help to scale them up into world-beating products.

Investment Collaborations: Fostering relations between private and public funders and innovators requiring investment to develop new products and grow their business.
