Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) are designed to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity by tapping into the knowledge, technology and skills offered by universities.

We are one of the UK's leading KTP providers and won the collaborative Innovation Excellence Award at the London Knowledge Transfer Awards. We are also among a handful of universities that have been commended by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) for our KTP work.

Let us improve your business by bringing our academic and research expertise into your world. Our academics take on challenges that are holding your business back and help you through the process of change and development to achieve short, medium and long term objectives.
