From 1 April 2014 a new company, KTN Ltd, will exist that brings together all the separate networks and communities we currently serve the UK community into one integrated organisation. This interdisciplinary network will provide a powerful vehicle for promoting innovation across all of UK business.
This is the first of a series of updates on the new KTN structure. The Chair David Lockwood and CEO Chris Warkup are already in place and the leadership team is nearly fully finalised. We have over 110 staff from current KTNs who have signed up as employees and are well on the way to assembling all the backend functions that we need to set up the new company.
Our hub offices will be located in London, Edinburgh, Oxford, Cambridge, Runcorn and Horsham. We will continue to use Connect as the focal point for all KTN activity,
The pace of change is accelerating, the development cycles for new technologies are shortening and therefore we need to communicate and to make connections more efficiently than ever before.
