The NanoKTN facilitates the transfer of knowledge and experience between industry and research, offering companies dealing in small-scale technology access to information on new processes, patents and funding as well as keeping up-to-date with industry regulation. The four broad areas that the NanoKTN focuses on are: Promoting and facilitating knowledge exchange, supporting the growth of UK capabilities, raising awareness of Nanotechnology, and providing thought leadership and input to UK policy and strategy. About Knowledge Transfer Networks (KTNs): KTNs (https://ktn.innovateuk.org/web/guest/networks) have been set up by government, industry and academia to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and experience between industry and the science base. They bring together diverse organisations and provide activities and initiatives that promote the exchange of knowledge and the stimulation of innovation in these communities. The first KTNs were set up in 2005 and the network continues to grow. They are active in sectors, technologies and market-based areas and they interact strongly with the government.



The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) is a UK based technology innovation centre and part of the government’s High Value Manufacturing Catapult. CPI offers market and technology expertise along with cutting-edge development assets to help its public and private sector clients build and prototype the next generation of products, processes and services quickly and efficiently, and with minimal risk. CPI has the capability to develop products and processes for companies working in the pharma, chemical, energy, transportation and printable electronics markets. Cutting-edge facilities are manned by commercially experienced scientists and engineers, and are equipped with development laboratories, prototyping facilities and pilot plants that enable clients to prove and scale up processes from the laboratory stage through to commercial reality. CPI also offers a multi-disciplined team who work together on project management, investment and market opportunities to ensure each business fulfils its potential.


Nanofibres move into the medical field and advanced composites
22 April, 2014
Electrospinning is now established as a commercially viable manufacturing process with nanofibres of a range of different polymers now readily available, either as standard product or as "specials’. Applications for these nanofibres are potentially in many different market areas and it is becoming clear that the greatest added value for electrospun nanofibres can be realised where they are used as part of a composite or in a multi-component construction. This article by Dr Barry Park and Dr Gabriela Juarez Martînez, Theme Managers of NanoKTN, together with Professor Bob Stevens, Professor of Smart Materials and Devices, iSMART Project Director, School of Science and Technology, Clifton Campus, Nottingham Trent University, is based on the talks presented at the event Nanofibres to Nanocomposites held at MediCity in Nottingham on 27 February. This event was co-organised by NanoKTN and Nottingham Trent University.
