Environmental Sustainability Knowledge Transfer Network

ESKTN The objective of the Environmental Sustainability Knowledge Transfer Network is to improve the competitiveness of UK environmental industries in key priority areas by:

  • Catalysing innovation
  • Enhancing the uptake of technologies
  • Improving knowledge transfer between stakeholders
  • Impacting government policy

The challenge...
The environmental sector is broad and diverse. It consists of a number of sub-sectors, including contaminated land, water and wastewater, waste and air. Within each sub-sector there is a wide variety of stakeholders, ranging from site owners, utility companies and manufacturing businesses, through to consultants, contractors, technology providers and regulators. Accelerating knowledge transfer and stimulating innovation throughout the traditionally separate sub-sectors requires effective engagement with a range of businesses, regulators and academic institutions, as well as collaboration with public and private networks.
