Knowledge Transfer Partnerships scheme
The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme helps businesses to innovate and grow. It does this by linking them with a university and a graduate to work on a specific project.
Each KTP is a three-way partnership between a business, an academic institution and a graduate. The academic institution employs the recently-qualified graduate who works at the company. The graduate, known as the ‘associate’, brings new skills and knowledge to the business.
A KTP can last between 6 months and 3 years depending on the project and the needs of the business. It is part-funded by a grant. The amount businesses need to contribute is different for SMEs and larger companies.
Find out if you’re eligible to apply for innovation funding:
– you can apply as a business if you are a company of any size or a not-for-profit organisation
– you can apply as an academic partner if you are a university, college or research technology organisation
– you can apply as an associate if you are a high-calibre recent graduate, you must have the knowledge and skills to lead an innovative and strategic business project
