Once a student is selected for one of our CASE PhD Studentships, they automatically become part of our KTN Associate programme.
Each KTN Associate is assigned a Knowledge Transfer Manager (KTM) who acts as their personal mentor. The KTM assesses, facilitates and monitors the Associate's individual training needs, as well discussing and advising on the wider commercial context of the research project.
By ensuring that our KTN Associates gain industry relevant skills and knowledge, and by providing them with opportunities to network with their peers and industry, we equip them to transfer their expertise and knowledge into industry.
"I have had the great pleasure of being involved with the KTN's CASE studentship programme for several years, both as a industry expert on the assessment panel and through studentships awarded to Genus plc. The KTN adds real value to these awards, both for the student and for the industrial partner."
Dr Alan Mileham, Head of Genomics at Genus plc.
