Growing Your Business
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

For over 40 years, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) have been helping businesses across the UK make better use of skills, technology and expertise to improve their competitiveness and efficiency. 

KTPs have a proven track record in helping businesses and social enterprises improve their profitability by providing access to new markets, seeking innovative solutions to business problems and enhancing quality.

Working with an academic institution such as a college or university, businesses can gain access to skills and expertise that will help them develop whilst students can work on specific projects that improve their ability to apply knowledge and theory to real problems to bring about improvements and greater efficiency.

KTPs are part-funded by a government grant particularly. Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) are expected to cover part of the cost, which goes towards paying the students and other academics involved in supporting their work. 

If you think your business could benefit from a KTP talk to Fenland for Business:
