Innovate UK

Innovate UK aims to drive productivity and growth by supporting universities and businesses to develop new ideas and innovate through a variety of funding opportunities.


Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) schemes help bring academic knowledge to businesses, increasing their competitiveness and productivity. The schemes allow businesses to have a part-funded innovator in residence to help develop a service or product. Each KTP project is a three-way partnership between a business, an academic or team of academics, and a graduate.

You are eligible to take part in a KTP if your organisation is:

  • a company
  • a charity or not-for-profit organisation
  • a hospital or NHS Trust
  • an educational institution.
