Attendees will receive presentations from the KTP and RIO teams with a view to encouraging academics and researchers to develop new KTP projects.

The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme is a three-way partnership between a business, an academic institution and a graduate. The academic institution employs the recently-qualified graduate who works at the company. The graduate, known as the ‘associate’, brings new skills and knowledge to the business.

A KTP can last between 12 and 36 months depending on the project and the needs of the business. It is part-funded by a grant.

Further details on the specific events will be released early January.
