The Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) programme is a national government scheme helping businesses access academic expertise to improve their productivity and competitiveness.
A KTP creates a three-way partnership between a company, a graduate and the university, enabling organisations to access knowledge, technology and skills, which can transform business performance. The company, graduate and university benefit from the collaboration, gaining business growth, invaluable experience and academic recognition respectively.
A KTP differs from consultancy in that a project team comprised of the academics, company and graduate work together to deliver a strategic project, ensuring that knowledge transferred is embedded in the company to provide a legacy benefit.
We have completed a number of successful KTPs funded by the ESRC and TSB and specialise in the areas of niche retailing, retail vending, retail start-up businesses, retail marketing and charity retailing.
We’d be delighted to talk about your business. We can identify an academic team with specialist knowledge relevant to your circumstances and work with you to recruit a skilled graduate to manage a specific strategic project in your organisation. We will supervise the graduate, transferring knowledge through them to help your business innovate, grow and improve. You will receive tailored advice and support through the project lifecycle.
