Knowledge Transfer Partnerships – Lunch Briefing (UAL)

Event Details

10th December, 2014
A402 Central Saint Martins, Granary Building, 1 Granary Square, London N1C 4AA

Further to the KTP National Week organised by Innovate UK, a lunch briefing will take place at Central Saint Martins to provide academics with up-to-date information on Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP), a prestigious government-funded scheme that supports collaboration between academics, businesses and recent graduates.

The Art Programme at CSM completed a KTP with Acme Studios in 2012, it resulted in a number of significant new initiatives for both partners and in 2014 it was nominated by the AHRC for the ‘Best KTP Impact’ award. Graham Ellard, who led the project for CSM, will present a brief overview with the former KTP Associate Arantxa Echarte, now employed by Acme as a Research Officer.

Graham Ellard is Professor of Fine Art, and Research Leader for the Art Programme.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships projects typically:

  • Help the business (a for-profit company, a social enterprise or cultural organisation) to undertake a strategic development project, for which academic input, expertise and understanding is essential.
  • Provide the academic with an entry point into a research career, or the opportunity to apply their existing research.
  • Provide the graduate with an employment opportunity, and the chance to work closely with an academic and business on a stretching project.
