KTN would like to invite you to a short webinar launching KTN’s Defence Innovation Exchange Programme.

KTN’s Innovation Exchange Programme helps organisations search for game-changing solutions to challenges and bring them to market faster. KTN’s Innovation Exchange breaks sectorial barriers giving access to high TRL and market-ready solutions from outside traditional networks.

Webinar recording is now available

 

Leveraging expertise across our diverse network, KTN promotes innovation transfer, matching real industry challenges from large businesses, to companies and innovators already working on the solutions. Our unique cross-sector approach taps into the power of collaboration providing technical solutions from other sectors.

Over the past 4-years, KTN’s Innovation Exchange Programme has proven it is a highly successful programme in the energy and infrastructure sectors and is now being expanded into the defence sector.

Our armed forces are now operating in a rapidly changing world, where threats from adversaries continue to evolve. There is a need to modernise by investing in new and innovative technologies to deliver rapid capability development, whilst also considering sustainability and the Net Zero agenda.
