Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP)

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) is Europe's leading programme helping businesses to improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK knowledge base. KTP is funded by the Technology Strategy Board with 17 other funding organisations. Each partnership employs one or more high calibre Associates (recently qualified people) to work on a project, which is core to the strategic development of the business.

ISRU can provide Knowledge Transfer Partnerships that provide resources and expertise to thriving organisations who wish to innovate, expand or improve their performance.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships can allow companies to:

  • Find an innovative solution to help business grow
  • Increase competitive advantage
  • Access recently qualified people to spearhead new projects
  • Access experts who can help take business forward

The aim of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships is to strengthen the competitiveness and wealth creation of the UK by the stimulation of innovation in business through collaborative partnerships with UK University and Higher Education Institutions. A Knowledge Transfer Partnership provides a mechanism for drawing on ISRU expertise and applying it to the organisation. The agreed project could be for any length of time between one and three years, with the overall aim of helping an organisation make a step change in an area that has been identified as high priority for business success. Businesses of all sizes in most industries and commercial sectors can take part. There are some limitations on the type of project and the sectors that can be supported.
