Welcome to the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) online resource that enables you to find out more about KTPs, seek guidance for successful grant applications and operation of KTP projects.
It's a powerful partnership
The benefits of taking part in a KTP:
- businesses achieve an average increase in pre-tax profit of £600k per annum for the three years following completion of a KTP project
- academic partners produce on average more than three new research projects and two research papers for each KTP project
- around 64 per cent of Associates are offered a permanent job in the company when the KTP project completes.
A KTP is a partnership between a university and a company to work on a challenging and innovative project which will transfer new knowledge/expertise into the business and extend research. A KTP Associate is employed to deliver the programme of work and the 12 to 36-month project is co-funded through an Innovate UK grant and the participating company.
