About this Event

Ever thought of collaborating with a University to address your business needs?

There are no shortage of questions when it comes to the next generation of business: whether you are focused on driving up productivity; looking to enter new markets; trying to prepare for Industry 4.0; wanting to explore how to make your business model more sustainable; or aiming to align your business to the emerging focus on a circular economy.

Edinburgh Napier University Business School has always had a strong reputation for its work with local businesses to address their challenges. Our business academics and subject experts work with both large and small clients to develop exciting and innovative products, processes and services; and our students can provide talented and insightful support for short-term projects.

A business breakfast you can’t afford to miss

Join us for an informative networking session over breakfast, where you can explore ways to access our academic and student talent for your research and project needs.

Edinburgh Napier has partnered with Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce for this event, which will provide details on how to access funding, in particular, for Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and working with our students on Live Projects.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

KTPs comprise a collaboration between industry (the company partner) and a University (the knowledge-base partner). They are designed to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through better use of knowledge, technology and skills and the UK Government invested a substantial £25m in Management Productivity KTPs in 2019 alone.

KTPs provide companies with access to exceptional resources, a dedicated team to deliver a strategic project, a depth and breadth of knowledge, and ultimately new capabilities and embedded knowledge. Projects can focus on a broad array of topics, and durations range from one to three years depending on the nature and scale of the project.

Come and hear more about project scoping and funding.

Live Projects

These are real-world projects conducted free, on a consultancy basis, by a small team of third year Undergraduate students.

You decide on the topic for your project. It could be a problem that you need to solve, or a business opportunity or issue you would like to explore.

• Your student team will conduct research and will present their findings and recommendations in a business presentation and a comprehensive report.

• Students are based in University, not your premises, and are supported by an academic tutor throughout.

Our breakfast event takes place on Thursday 20th February 2020.

The event will be hosted by Edinburgh Napier University Business School, in partnership with the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, and will benefit anyone interested in knowledge transfer activities, especially Management Productivity KTPs.
