The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) programme allows a UK registered business or not for profit organisation (which we will refer to collectively as the ‘business partner’ from now on) to partner with a knowledge base partner’ (either a UK higher education (HE) or further education (FE) institution, research and technology organisation (RTO) or Catapult).

The KTP partnership brings new skills and the latest academic thinking into the business partner to deliver a specific, strategic innovation project. The knowledge base partner recruits the ‘associate’ to work on the project. The associate has the opportunity to lead a strategic development within the business developing new skills and gaining valuable experience.

Your project

Your application must be for a specific, strategic innovation project that tackles one or more challenges faced by the business partner.

It can be any kind of project and must show:

  • how it helps the business with a real need
  • how it fits the strategic aims of the business partner
  • a genuine market opportunity and a viable route to market
  • how the knowledge gained will be embedded within the business partner
  • what makes your project innovative

Funding

Successful applications are partially funded on the following basis:

  • large companies may receive a grant contribution of up to 50% of eligible project costs, subject to a cap, with the business paying the balance
  • SME’s may receive a grant contribution up to 67% of eligible project costs, subject to a cap, with the business paying the balance
  • not for profit businesses of any size may receive a grant contribution of up to 75% of eligible project costs, subject to a cap, with the business paying the balance
