UKTIN is the innovation network for the UK telecoms sector, bringing together industry, academia, and government to catalyse telecoms R&D investment, cooperation, and commercialisation.

Formed in October 2022, UKTIN was initially funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DMCS) to drive the 5G Supply Chain Diversification Strategy and will provide support for supply chain diversification in UK telecoms. It will work towards this goal by strengthening UK capabilities in open telecoms, attracting overseas companies and talent, facilitating indigenous supply chain development, catalysing public and private investment, and proactively promoting UK capability internationally.
