Knowledge Transfer Partnerships: what they are and how to apply

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.

Taking part in a KTP can help you to develop your business. You can get academic expertise that you don’t have in-house. This can improve your business performance and help you to become more competitive and productive.

KTP have a number of regional offices in Wales.

These are the open and close dates for the KTP programme:

  • open 5 July 2018, close 19 September 2018

  • open 20 September 2018, close 31 October 2018

  • open 1 November 2018, close 12 December 2018
