ktplogoKnowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) is a UK-wide programme enabling organisations to improve their competitiveness, productivity and performance by engagement with universities, FE colleges and research and technology organisations.

KTP announces the addition of the Mini KTP to its portfolio of funding options. This shorter format will support projects of 10-40 weeks fte duration.

Shorter KTP projects act as a stepping-stone for those organisations that have not worked with a knowledge base before to realise the benefits that can be achieved through knowledge transfer and collaborative partnerships. KTP is also part-funded by the Government so is a cost effective method of:

  • Accessing highly qualified people to spearhead new projects
  • Accessing experts who can help take your organisation forward
  • Developing innovative solutions to help your organisation grow

Please visit KTP Online for more information on the scheme.

The University of Sheffield leads the UK in engagement through KTP. To enquire about working with the Polymer Centre under the scheme or to make contact with other research groups across the University, please email Joe Gaunt.
