Knowledge Transfer Partnerships
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) are government funded collaborations that enable UK businesses to benefit from the expertise of the UK's knowledge base (institutions of higher education and research organisations). Opportunities exist within KTPs for existing graduates, who are recruited as KTP Associates, to manage a project (Knowledge Transfer Project) that has been negotiated between the host institution and the employer. KTP Associates are employed by the host institution but can expect to spend the majority of their time with the employer around whom the project is centred. The benefits for the graduate are broad but include a salaried post, invaluable project-led employer experience and the opportunity to study for a Masters or PhD by research.
For further information on KTPs please visit both the national KTP website and the Durham University KTP website, both of which can be accessed using the links on the right hand side.
