Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

Helping businesses to improve competitiveness and productivity

Cost: Costs vary

University expertise and a full-time graduate based at your business

Cost Explanation: Companies will need to contribute to the cost of the graduate.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships bring expertise, graduate talent and practical backing into your team. Previous participants in the KTP scheme have seen an average increase of over £260,000* in annual profits. You bring the ambition and strategic vision to transform your business, and UWE Bristol will provide the practical graduate support, applied knowledge and technical expertise to help you achieve your goals.

A talented graduate, based full-time in your business, drives and delivers the project, with full University backing and help with supervision and management. You and the graduate have weekly access to an academic or researcher with knowledge, skills and experience that is relevant to your business. You will reap rewards - increased profitability, strategic growth and embedded knowledge. Up to 67% of project costs can be met by the UK Government, making it very cost-effective. Businesses are fully supported by UWE Bristol-s dedicated KTP team.

More than 3,000 projects, lasting between six months to three years, have been successfully completed nationally. Suitable for most industries and sectors, including not-for-profit organisations.
