The mission of a KTP is to strengthen the competitiveness, wealth creation and economic performance of the UK by the enhancement of knowledge and skills and the stimulation of innovation through collaborative projects between business and the knowledge base.
KTP projects are not currently available for public sector organisations, however, these projects are a great opportunity for partners and organisations you work with across the private and third sector, regardless of their size.
A KTP partnership is a sum of three parts; a business partner, academic partner and associate.
Business partner: the business the project is supporting
Academic partner: the University supporting the project
Associate: key person working on the project managed by an academic with relevant expertise
