Knowledge Transfer Accounts (KTA)

Surgical ImplantsThe KTA is a knowledge exchange scheme which commercialises outputs from research in Durham and Newcastle Universities. It is a scheme funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

It uses the clinical base of the NHS Trusts to translate the engineering and physical science research results of the universities into a position where they can be exploited by the healthcare industry.

The scheme ends on 30th September 2012 but no further funding is available for this initiative.

The scheme has been extremely successful and a number of case studies are available to illustrate this.
