Discover the Knowledge Transfer Partnership scheme
A Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) is a subsidised three-way partnership between a business, a high-calibre graduate and an academic institution.
It is a cost-effective way for businesses to attract fresh talent and access the expertise in universities and colleges to deliver strategic innovative solutions to achieve business growth.
The scheme is funded by Innovate UK and Invest NI; we partner business and graduates, matching project requirements with the technical skills and academic disciplines.
Up to two-thirds of the costs will be covered.
We also offer a Management KTP Programme which pairs business management graduates with companies seeking to implement strategic organisational improvements.
These collaborations can directly improve your company's competitiveness, productivity, efficiency and profitability.
Projects typically last about two years and funding is available for up to two-thirds of the total project costs.
KTP offers companies:
- Graduate skills
- Access to knowledge and research in third level institutions
- A channel for commercialising research
- Support through new product, service or process development
