Knowledge Transfer Partnership Networking and Showcasing Event

The University of Hull would like to invite you to a Knowledge Transfer Partnership[KTP] networking and showcasing event on Wednesday 22 January 2020, 2:00-4:30 pm, Kingsley Suite, Canham Turner, University of Hull.

The event will relaunch the University’s KTP provision and vision, showcasing the broad range of opportunities KTPs offer to researchers as well as industries and businesses, who might benefit from accessing the University’s academic knowhow, technology and facilities through a KTP collaboration.

Representatives from businesses, academics and KTP Associates involved in past and current KTPs with the university will showcase some of the fabulous work and breakthroughs KTP projects have enabled them to achieve, discuss the practical process of applying for and managing a KTP, and share some of their hints and tips for creating successful KTPs. One of the region’s two dedicated expert KTP advisors, Trevor Gregory, will provide insight into the Innovate UK KTP initiative and current opportunities, offering advice on how KTPs would benefit their companies. Furthermore, staff from the University involved in managing and facilitating KTP applications, including the University’s resident KTP expert, Professor Steve Kelly, and KTP Champion, Dr Jay Wadhawan, will be on hand to answer queries and explain the benefits for staff, especially in the context of the KEF.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships is a UK-wide programme that has been helping businesses for the past 40 years to improve their competitiveness and productivity through better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK Knowledge Base. A KTP is a three-way partnership between an academic, a business partner (including private sector companies, charities and public sector organisations) and an Associate employed on a joint project with the business partner.

A Knowledge Transfer Partnership serves to meet a core strategic need and to identify innovative solutions to help that business grow. KTPs often deliver significant increased profitability for business partners through improved quality and operations, increased sales and access to new markets. Commercial organisations, social enterprises and cultural and creative industries have benefited from KTPs; find out more about some of the University of Hull’s KTPs here:
