A Knowledge Transfer Partnership project with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) targets eczema treatment.
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are one of the Technology Strategy Board's (TSB) business support solutions that enable knowledge and technology transfer between academia and industry.
KTPs can range from one to three years during which academic experts will assist an industrial partner to create strategic and profitable change within their organisation via a high flying graduate/associate to focus on a specific project.
Within Newcastle University, there is a KTP Office which actively works to:
“The KTP has allowed us to improve our competitive position by enabling us to enter a new and growing segment of the orthopaedic implant market. This shoulder project will be a novel implant that overcomes a significant complication associated with existing competitor products. By entering a small but growing market, it is hoped that JRI will be able to quickly achieve a good market share. As the shoulder market is especially large in USA and France, the impact of the shoulder is also of importance to JRI export markets”
