Knowledge Transfer Partnership

What is a KTP?

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) is a UK-wide programme, part funded by the Government and Technology Strategy Board, enabling organisations to improve their competitiveness, productivity and performance. 

The agreed project could be for any length of time between 12 months and 3 years, and can vary in length depending upon the business need. The overall aim of the KTP programme is to help organisations make significant step changes in areas they have identified as high priority.

KTP has worked with over 3,000 organisations. From manufacturing to design, sustainability to marketing; any business sector, including third sector and public sector organisations such as the NHS, can take part. Businesses of all sizes can take part too, from micro businesses to large enterprises.
