Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme helps businesses to innovate and grow. The scheme links an organisation with a University and a graduate to work on an innovative, strategic project.

Each KTP is a three-way partnership designed to benefit everyone involved, which includes:

  • the business
  • the University
  • the graduate

The graduate is employed by the University but is based at the company, which can be located anywhere in the UK. The graduate does not 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. 

The scheme is supported by government funding. The amount you need to contribute depends on the size of your business and the scale and length of the project.

Benefits of a KTP: Taking part in a KTP can help you develop your business and get the academic and specialised expertise that you may not have in-house. There are a number of benefits to taking part in a KTP scheme with us, including:

  • expertise from the School of Pharmacy and wider University to drive forward the project
  • access to specialised equipment, technologies, and methodologies
  • guidance with new technologies and approaches to addressing the identified issue
  • experience with personal and professional development opportunities

Get Involved: To discuss a potential KTP with the School of Pharmacy, please contact Dr Karen Morgan; Tel: +44 (0)191 208 5768.
