Expert support for your business

Knowledge Transfer Partnership

The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme helps businesses like yours to innovate and grow. We draw on expertise that you may not have in-house.

Our expertise can help your business perform better by becoming more competitive and productive. The scheme links your organisation with a university. A graduate will then work on an innovative, strategic project.

Each KTP is a three-way partnership between the business, the university and the graduate, or associate. These partnerships benefit everyone involved.

We employ the graduate but they work at the company, which can be anywhere in the UK. The graduate doesn't have to be from Newcastle University to take part.

A KTP usually lasts between one and three years, depending on the project and your business needs.

Government funding supports this scheme. The amount you need to contribute depends on the size of your business and the scale and length of the project.

The KTP provided us with the research and expertise of Newcastle University Business School. The KTP will help with the change that the automotive aftersales market is experiencing right now.
