University business collaborationWe can help you with business development
We give you access to LSBU's expert knowledge, as well as unique funding sources like the KTP scheme, to help you turn your business ideas into real business opportunities.
We can help you with business development, improving or introducing business processes and services, developing technologies, establishing new capabilities, and increasing efficiency.
Our flagship programme is the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP), which is supported by Innovate UK.
For every £1 million invested in KTP, £4.8 million profit is generated and 30 new jobs are created.
With up to two thirds of a KTP project being funded by government grants, a KTP is a three-way partnership between commercially-focused academics from LSBU, your business and graduate/postgraduate associate working full time on the project. The partnerships are designed to introduce and embed change within your organisation.
