The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme has been helping businesses to innovate and grow for the past 40 years. It does this by linking them with a university and a graduate to work on a specific project.
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.
A KTP can last between 12 and 36 months depending on the project and the needs of the business. It is part-funded by a grant. The amount businesses need to contribute is different for SMEs and larger companies.
UWS has a proud and successful track record of working with businesses of all sizes in grant-funded partnership projects. We have been successful in KTPs for over forty years and have helped many companies innovate and grow through the scheme.

Each KTP will meet a core strategic need and identify innovative solutions to help business and social enterprises grow. KTPs aim to delivers significant increased profitability for business partners as a direct result of the partnership through improved quality and operations, increased productivity efficiency, effectiveness, sales and access to new markets.
