A KTP provides opportunities for a business to:

  • Improve competitiveness
  • Boost productivity
  • Enhance performance
  • Increase profitability

As a student, I was completely oblivious to the world of KTP but now, as a former KTP associate, I look back at my two-year project as the best choice I could have made after graduation.
You're empowered to drive your own project, but with a wealth of support from academic and commercial stakeholders.
The personal development training and budgets were a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity not to be turned down.
If you get the opportunity to be involved in a KTP project, don't hesitate to get involved.

Each Knowledge Transfer Project (KTP) is individually designed to transfer the academic knowledge and expertise of the University into a new business initiative or challenge.

Projects last from 12 months to three years and a highly skilled graduate is recruited by the University and placed within the business to deliver the project.

The work is supported by intensive input from a senior academic who will be an expert in their field and who will work for half a day each week throughout the project.

Wider advantages across a business include creating and embedding a culture of innovation; the transfer of new knowledge and skills across the workforce; and enhancing the reputation of the organisation through innovation in the business sector.
