This [KTP project] has allowed us to be more aggressive in our business market place and has led to increased turnover and an increase in profit going forward.

Nigel Thornton, Company Supervisor, Collett & Sons Ltd

Each Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) is part-funded by Innovate UK on behalf of the government. Higher rates of funding (up to 67%) are available to SMEs and companies applying for their first KTP.

Most companies, however, large or small in a variety of sectors are eligible for KTP, and a typical KTP lasts between 12 and 36 months.

Typical costs per annum for an SME would be £23,000, and spend on KTPs is eligible for research and development tax credits, further reducing the costs of collaboration. More information can be found on the government’s website.
