Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) connect and catalyse people and activity to drive innovation.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are KTN projects that focus KTN activity and accelerate innovation in cross-disciplinary topics of strategic importance.

SIGs are time-bound activities across a wide range of specialist areas to connect and catalyse people and activities to achieve specific knowledge transfer and innovation outcomes. SIGs typically achieve their objectives over a small number of years and are replaced by new higher-priority areas of focus.


Our current roster of SIGs includes:



Additive Manufacturing

Compound Semiconductor Applications

Energy Harvesting

Graphene and other 2D Materials

Immerse UK

Quantum Technologies

Robotics and Artificial Intelligence

Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Synthetic Biology

Uncertainty Quantification and Management
