Making your project happen
To succeed, the project needs to be strategically important and have the potential to transform your business by making it more competitive and productive. A KTP can last between 12 and 36 months depending on the project and the needs of your business.
An Innovation Funding Manager will be assigned to you and work closely with you in completing the funding application form. Once your KTP has been approved, we will work together to recruit a recently qualified graduate/postgraduate known as the KTP Associate. With the support of the academic team, the Associate will work in your business day to day, focusing on delivering the agreed project objectives. The Associate also undertakes a personal development programme (included in the budget) and the Innovation Funding Manager will be on hand to offer support throughout the project.
Am I eligible?
We will check the feasibility of your idea, tell you if it is suitable for KTP and source the appropriate academics to support your project.
KTPs often result in the development of profitable long-term relationships between the company and the University.
