Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are a three-way collaboration. They are a government-funded programme through Innovate UK. They help businesses to improve competitiveness, productivity and performance.

We can help you bring innovative ideas to fruition through collaboration and in partnership with our University experts. Your project will have access to our knowledge, technology and skills supported by a qualified KTP associate.

We are here to help. We have a dedicated and highly experienced KTP team here at the University of Central Lancashire who can provide your business with support throughout the process. 

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) aim to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills within the UK knowledge base.
