Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

A Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Northumbria University provides a mechanism for organisations to plan and deliver ambitious, strategic projects in collaboration with our Academics. KTPs help embed new knowledge and implement ways of working that make a big impact on competitiveness, productivity and profits.

By working with a talented graduate or postgraduate, guided by leading university specialists, organisations can introduce new approaches, develop new products, processes, and services efficiently and effectively. Businesses who participate in a KTP consistently report wide-ranging benefits including improved business performance, competitive advantage, increased productivity and access to new markets, including export.

If you’re interested in finding out more about how a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Northumbria University could benefit your organisation talk to our Business Development team. We’ll help you explore your options and find the right solution.

The KTP programme has a long track record of success and is led and funded by Innovate UK, the UK’s national innovation agency. Innovate UK and supports business-led innovation in all sectors, technologies and UK regions. A proportion of a KTP project’s costs will be funded by Innovate UK.
