Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

A Knowledge Transfer Partnership links your business to a world-class academic partner in the UK to drive innovation through collaboration.

For over 40 years Knowledge Transfer Partnerships have been helping businesses innovate for growth by accessing the UK’s world-leading knowledge base.

If you have an idea for your business but do not have all the in-house expertise needed to develop it, a Knowledge Transfer Partnership may be the answer. It creates a dynamic three-way collaboration – between a business or not for profit organisation, a UK university or research organisation, and a suitably qualified graduate – to help realise a strategic innovation project, bring about transformative change and embed new capability.

Visit the new KTP website – the new hub for all things KTP. You’ll find news, case studies, details on how to participate in a KTP either as a company, a knowledge base or a graduate – and the site will also feature the latest KTP Associate job vacancies.

This year saw the return of the popular KTP Best of the Best Awards. Competition was stiff across all categories, with nominations reflecting the diversity and quality of the KTP programme which spans all sectors and can benefit organisations of all sizes. Find out more about the finalists here, and click here to download a commemorative brochure with all the winners.
