About this event

The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) helps businesses get the best out of creativity, ideas and the latest discoveries, to strengthen the UK economy and improve people’s lives.

KTN links new ideas and opportunities with expertise, markets and finance through their network of businesses, universities, funders and investors. From agri-food to autonomous systems and from energy to design, KTN combines in-depth knowledge in all sectors with the ability to cross boundaries.

Connecting with KTN can lead you to potential partners, horizon-expanding events, bespoke support and innovation insights relevant to your needs. They work with a variety of funders to contribute to UK growth through innovation.

KTN is a network partner of Innovate UK, the national innovation funding agency, enabling them to work with companies free of charge, connecting people to expertise, funding and facilities in order to accelerate innovation.

With an annual budget of over £500m, Innovate UK funds innovation (through sector competitions, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and other initiatives), connects business-led innovation (through the KTN and Enterprise Europe Network), supports access to European funding (through National Contact Points) and supports access to technical facilities and expertise (though the Catapult network). This wider Innovate UK family can help get your product or service to market more quickly and de-risk the journey from concept to commercialisation.

Joining us will be Matt Chapman - the medical technologies lead for the KTN. Matt is based near Manchester and is also KTN's district lead for the Northwest.

This session is ideal for anyone who wants to learn more about funding opportunities from Innovate UK (and other funders), and how the KTN and other Innovate UK family organisations can guide you to the right support and collaboration opportunities for your business.
