Many companies have benefitted from embedding a University researcher in their team for a defined period. The companies benefit from direct access to the latest ideas and thinking in the academic world and the University benefits from the experience and knowledge that flow back into the research groups from the commercial sector.
Knowledge transfer is the process by which knowledge and ideas move between the University and users of that knowledge. It is one of the University’s strategic priorities.
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP)
KTPs are a national scheme that supports collaborative projects involving a ‘knowledge base’ partner and a ‘company’ partner, for example a university and an SME. Projects can be set up to 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.
