Creating Impact through Innovation

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships is Europe’s leading programme helping business to improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK knowledge base. KTP is funded by Innovate UK with 12 other funding organisations.

With 94% of completed projects achieving or exceeding expectations between 2011 and 2016 and an £8 return for every £1 public money invested it is perhaps not surprising that the programme has enjoyed over 40-years of  history in the UK and has funded in excess of 10,000 projects in that time.
