The KTN is an overarching network of networks in Materials, set up to bring together the views of all in business, designers, research and technology organisations, trade associations, the financial market, academia and others in the value network across the materials community. The KTN and its network groups will provide a range of activities and initiatives to enable the exchange of knowledge and the stimulation of business innovation. Bringing all the materials networks together under the one umbrella will ensure we work together, optimise resources, spread best practice and provide a one-stop shop for materials advice and expertise to UK manufacturing and service providers.
