Real business experience

"It is my view that the KTP we embarked on with Charlie and Plymouth University has been highly effective. We have not only got an innovative market leading product, but also a very detailed overall understanding of the market, which will be instrumental in the company's strategy, for the development of other products within this sector during coming years."
