The important news this month is to reiterate that as of 1st April most of the current Knowledge Transfer Networks are merging to become a single company.
Over the next few months, in line with the new company and organisational arrangements, you will notice some changes in branding and tweaks to better represent the interdisciplinary nature of innovation.
The unified organisation will consist of communities, and the Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network (including the Design Special Interest Group) will very much continue to exist as the Creative Industries community of The KTN.
It’s certainly a case of evolution not revolution. Rest assured membership will still be free and the vast majority of current KTN staff have joined the new company and can be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org. You are most likely to have the same point of contact you always did but it will now be easier to make connections for you across sectors and disciplines - especially between those who might not normally meet.
Chris Warkup is the CEO of The KTN and the senior leadership team for knowledge transfer comprises Frank Boyd, Sue Dunkerton, Carol Boyer Spooner and Steve Welch.
Our main hub offices are currently in Edinburgh, Runcorn, Oxford, Cambridge, Horsham and London but the nature of the new organisation means we have many other staff placed throughout the rest of the country who are able to provide a face to face service.
You’ll notice that the communities are largely former KTNs and the “key communities” identified by the Technology Strategy Board. One of the ambitions of the change is to present a more coherent structure aligned to the Technology Strategy Board and Catapults.
The new structure will still support the networking within our Creative Industries community but will encourage more interaction at the interface with others. Where communities combine to form a medium term set of activities – this will be a Group. Overlaying the whole KTN will be business programmes supporting Horizon 2020, Sustainability, Access to Finance and International.
We’ll still be very interested in supporting priority areas as identified within our Creative Industries Strategy 2013-16 but these new organisational changes mean you can share your technologies, solutions and expertise with other markets more effectively and also more easily benefit from innovative ideas and collaborations from other places.
A full list of communities and generic email addresses is below. We are in the process of pulling together a full list of contact points across the company that we will be able to share shortly.
