Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

We can work with you to address key strategic projects or challenges. Access leading knowledge and research through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs).

“When we embarked on the Edge Hill Innovation Sprint Programme we had no idea what a positive impact this would have on CRG. Not only have we identified how a dynamic digital and data management system can support and benefit CRG, we are now about to embark on a journey with the University team and the KTP Associate to deliver this to the business.

It is an exciting project which will have a significant impact on the way we work and the increased benefits we can provide our members.”

KTPs are supported through grant funding by Innovate UK. SMEs are eligible for up to two thirds of the costs of the KTP supported by grant funding. KTPs can last between 12 to 36 months where the knowledge is transferred from the University into the business via academic expertise and one or more graduate level Associates, employed for the life of the project to deliver its aims.

Innovate UK’s priority is to fund KTP projects which demonstrate the potential for a high level of innovation, economic and/or societal impact, as well as being a challenge for all the participants and they have a number of ‘priority’ areas which they are looking to support.

The University’s department of Computer Science’s research specialisms can support projects which cover:

  • digital technologies
  • emerging technologies
