Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

 business people at work in corporate office

You can improve your business' competitiveness and productivity through funded partnerships with academics and researchers. The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme helps businesses in the UK to innovate and grow. It does this by linking them with an academic or research organisation and a graduate.

A KTP enables a business to bring in new skills and the latest academic thinking to deliver a specific, strategic innovation project through a knowledge-based partnership.

The academic or research organisation partner will help to recruit a suitable graduate, known as an Associate. They will act as the employer of the graduate, who then works at the company for the duration.

KTP programmes run continuously throughout the year.
