The KTA is designed to ensure that the results and experience from the University’s EPSRC-funded research portfolio are exploited to deliver the maximum economic and societal benefit for the UK. The broad aims of the KTA are:
- to further develop a culture which values and recognises knowledge transfer;
- to provide and support an enhanced capacity and novel mechanisms to identify, develop and realise opportunities;
- to work closely with our partners to maximise the impact of EPSRC-funded research in order to realise economic and societal benefits for UK citzens.
The KTA will offer a number of support mechanisms to promote knowledge transfer, including project funding, secondment support, short-term R&D resource and a product “Designer in Residence” scheme. To find out more about the KTA’s operations, please visit the website below.
