KTN uses deep sector expertise to make powerful connections across sectors, geographies and skill-sets to drive change through innovation.  These connections have never been more important as – globally and as the UK – we respond to the Covid-19 pandemic.


On this page we will provide signposting and updates that will be useful to our networks.  We will regularly update these so please bookmark the page.


Please note, KTN is not responsible for the content of third party sites.

KTN is ideally placed to work for the greater good.  We can bring together sectors to work on supply chain issues; our network can be a source of innovative solutions and approaches and KTN sits at the centre of this.  We will be highlighting calls for support across many different sectors and signposting National Contact Points and specific funding calls.

KTN’s CEO, Alicia Greated, shares her response to COVID-19:



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. Scroll through Covid-19 related funding calls at the bottom of this page, or see our funding round-up here.


Online events

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 exploring new ways of online working to continue to provide the dissemination of information via panels and Q&A sessions, opportunities for virtual pitching, in-webinar breakout rooms and 1-2-1 meetings.

Some of our Covid-19 specific events can be found at the bottom of this page. Alternatively you can browse all KTN events online here.

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

There is a myriad of business support sites, government health resources, homeworking and wellness tips online. We’ve provided a round-up of some of the key ones here.
