Knowledge Transfer Partnerships – Bath Spa University

Could a knowledgeable and innovative graduate benefit your business?

A ‘Knowledge Transfer Partnership’ (KTP) is a funded scheme run by Innovate UK to help universities and businesses to innovate and grow.

Each KTP is a three-way partnership between a business, an academic institution and a graduate. The academic institution employs the recently-qualified graduate who works at the company. The graduate, known as the ‘associate’ brings new skills and knowledge to the business.

KTPs are a great way to:

  • Access expertise you don’t have in-house
  • Afford dedicated staff to deliver a project you wouldn’t otherwise be able to resource.
  • Introduce innovation into your business to give it a competitive advantage and to help it grow.

A KTP can last between 12 and 36 months depending on the project and the needs of the business.

More information about the KTP scheme can be found on Innovate UK.
