Knowledge transfer is one of the University’s strategic priorities. The University participates in the national Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme, which helps businesses second an academic or research graduate.

A Knowledge Transfer Partnership:

  • enables a business to bring new skills and the latest academic thinking to deliver a specific, strategic innovation project
  • lasts between 12 and 36 months, depending on what the project is and the needs of the business
  • can include a period where the researcher is located at the company's facilities

The University KTP officer provides general advice and support to projects, from the initial exploratory discussion stage through to completion.
