KTN’s international work

KTN provides sector-focussed, thematic support to businesses and delivers programmes to accelerate global exploitation of UK innovation for economic growth and social development needs. Our Global Expert Mission programme plays a vital role in building the UK’s bilateral innovation partnerships. The Global Alliance, a six-year project in partnership with DFID and Innovate UK, is designed to support stronger innovation ecosystems across Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria.

KTN’s EU Programmes work

KTN supports UK based businesses in engaging with Europe and Horizon 2020 (H2020) to help them access new markets and establish new collaborations across sectors and along value chains. We work closely with the UK H2020 National Contact Points (NCPs) and the Enterprise Europe Network to optimise the support for companies. KTN also participates in European projects where they support our purpose and strategy (e.g. Co-ordination & Support  Actions).  Visit KTN’s EU Programmes page.


Global Covid-19 funding

KTN continues to support funding calls by signposting our network to them and by holding online briefing events.  It is vitally important to keep money coming into business and we will be updating our funding pages with new calls as well as highlighting existing competitions.

Events and engagements

We recognise the importance of face-to-face events and we know that you value these networking opportunities.  However, we’ve moved the majority of our events and meetings online for the foreseeable future and we’re introducing online working to continue to disseminate information.


A wide variety of groups are working on Covid-19 related calls and partnerships. You can find a list of global resources and initiatives here.
