Management Knowledge Transfer Partnerships
Management Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (mKTPs) are like Knowledge Transfer Partnerships in that they aim to transform business through a dynamic partnership between a company, academic experts and associates. A key difference is that they are now available to the public sector (not central Government).
