Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

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.  In order 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.


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 Meera Vijayaraghavan; Tel:  Tel: +44 (0)191 208 1308
