Ever wanted to know what a KTP was all about, but never dared ask?

This event aims to publicise the benefits of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) and explains what they are. You will be presented with information about the application process and the projects themselves. We hope to also present points of view from stakeholder businesses, academic supervisors, associates, KTP Managers and Innovate UK.
