The UK Technology Strategy Board and Ministry of Defence (MoD) is to fund an aerospace and defence Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) over three years.

The £2.4m KTN will be managed by the Society of British Aerospace Companies (SBAC), with the aim of improving the UK’s innovation performance by increasing and accelerating technology transfer into UK-based businesses.

SBAC says the KTN will promote innovation and collaboration across industry, government and academia to implement the UK’s National Aerospace Technology Strategy.
