UK Telecoms Innovation Network logo

The UK Telecoms Innovation Network (UKTIN) is the innovation network for the UK telecoms sector bringing together industry, government stakeholders, and academia to catalyse R&D investment, cooperation and commercialisation.

Telecoms is a complex and competitive market. Translating innovation into commercial offerings can be a challenge. UKTIN is here to enable spin-outs, start-ups, and scale-ups to accelerate their growth, helping the UK to develop a more competitive and dynamic market.

To support the translation of early-stage technology solutions into commercial products, as part of UKTIN and on behalf of the University of Bristol, we are providing a comprehensive programme of support to ensure companies have well-developed business models with the potential to scale globally and raise investment for growth and R&D.

Join the UKTIN Innovation Network

The UKTIN Innovation Network is an online digital platform where you can network with fellow telecoms start-ups, keep up to date with industry and funding news and the UKTIN team will be on hand to help you navigate the sector and signpost to other support available from the wider network.
