Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP)

KTP is a government scheme which helps companies access the knowledge and skills within the UK's 'Knowledge Base', e.g. universities. KTP helps companies to draw on this expertise by supporting key development projects and developing able graduates with specialist knowledge and skills.

A KTP programme is an agreed programme of work carried out by a KTP associate based at the company and supported from City half a day per week by an academic with relevant expertise.

A KTP project must be shown to be strategically important to a company, require the input of a University or other research institution, and provide an excellent career-base for a graduate. Common objectives of KTP projects include:

  • Developing new products and markets
  • Improving quality, productivity, sales and customer responsiveness
  • Reducing costs
  • Recruiting and developing expertise

The company commitment is approximately 40% of the total costs of the scheme. The scheme is administered by City and the associate is an employee of City.

For further details, see the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships home page.
