- Competition opens: Monday 27 June 2022
- Competition closes: Wednesday 14 September 2022 11:00am
The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) programme allows a UK registered business or not for profit organisation (which we will refer to collectively as the ‘business partner’ from now on) to partner with a knowledge base partner’ (either a UK higher education (HE) or further education (FE) institution, research and technology organisation (RTO) or Catapult).
The KTP partnership brings new skills and the latest academic thinking into the business partner to deliver a specific, strategic innovation project. The knowledge base partner recruits the ‘associate’ to work on the project. The associate has the opportunity to lead a strategic development within the business developing new skills and gaining valuable experience.
Guidance on how to apply for a KTP is provided here.
Each application must be led by a knowledge base, working with a business partner and supported by a knowledge transfer adviser.
If you are a business and do not yet have a relationship with a knowledge base partner, the knowledge transfer adviser can help you to identify one.
By submitting an application, you are entering into a competitive process. The competition closes at 11am UK time on the deadline stated.
It takes time to prepare an application. If yours will not be ready before the close date, please apply to a later round.
