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 company perform better by becoming more competitive and productive. The scheme links you organisation with a university. A graduate will then work on an innovative, stratiegic project. 

Each KTP is a three-way partnershop between the business, the university and the graduate, or associate. These partnerships benefitt 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.
