What is a Knowledge Transfer Partnership? brings the expertise of the UK knowledge base into business to help stimulate growth, increase profits and develop new products and services.

  • KTP projects are part funded by the Technology Strategy Board.
  • Latest information shows that on average, a KTP can generate an increase of over £220,000 in annual profits before tax, three genuine new jobs, and an increase in skills of existing staff.
  • KTP is a dynamic two to three year partnership that combines specialist academic expertise, and a highly skilled graduate together with a business to create lasting innovation.
  • There are currently over 1,000 KTP projects running at Universities across England.

Shorter-term KTP opportunities exist:

  • Mini KTPs operate in the same way as classic KTP projects, but are shorter, lasting anywhere from three to nine months.
  • The Knowledge Catalyst Scheme, funded by the AHRC offer Knowledge Transfer projects lasting between 3 and 15 months.
