Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) bring together academia with industry to improve business competitiveness for the long-term.

The government-funded programme, launched in 2003, encourages collaboration to spread knowledge and relevant business skills to the company, while stimulating business-relevant research and offering employment to a recent graduate.

Each KTP involves three 'partners':

  • a company 
  • a knowledge base (or university)
  • an associate, who is a recently qualified graduate

If you have a specific business project that you believe would benefit from academic input and a fresh graduate perspective, please contact us for more information.

Corporate Partners

We work closely with the business community on a regional, national and international level, ensuring that our teaching and learning, research, and enterprise meets the ever changing needs of industry.

We are pleased to be associated with some of the biggest companies in the region, and beyond, through our corporate partner scheme.
