Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP)
Formerly known as Teaching Company Schemes (TCS), the KTP funding mechanism has been described as one of the UK’s best-kept secrets. Government support (typically between 40 and 60%) is available for joint projects between industry and academics. the duration of the development project can be up to 3 years. One or more graduates is employed to work in depth on an industry-led problem, with the support of the University’s facilities and expertise.
Staff at ACMC have many years’ experience with these programmes. Plymouth University has a dedicated KTP Office for project management and development support. Programmes can address a wide range of commercial problems, including design, manufacture, marketing, quality systems, etc.
