Knowledge Transfer Partnership

A Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) is a collaborative three-way partnership between a university, a business, and a graduate (known as the Associate) that benefits everyone involved.

KTPs help businesses like yours innovate and grow by utilising expertise that you may not have available in-house.  A KTP can boost your business' performance by making you more competitive and productive.

The Associate is employed by us but works at your business premises which can be anywhere in the UK. The Associate will work on an innovative, strategic project for your business throughout the duration of the KTP.  To participate, Associates are not required to be graduates of Newcastle University.

Depending on the project and your business needs, a KTP usually lasts between one and three years. Government funding supports the scheme. Your contribution depends on the size of your business and the scale and duration 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.
