KTP – The Academic Perspective
Thursday, 21 May 2015 from 13:00 to 14:30 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
This workshop on Knowledge Transfer Partnerships will take the form of a panel discussion allowing attendees to ask questions of colleagues with experience of developing relationships with companies, writing proposals and managing successful projects.
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) is a UK-wide government funded scheme which places high quality graduates, known as Associates, into companies of all sizes to undertake projects of strategic importance to the company, with the supervision of an academic. The University has successfully delivered projects in areas as diverse as business strategy, flight safety, and environmental issues.
The scheme provides academic researchers with the opportunity to apply their research to real world business projects and identify new research themes; KTP projects can be included in REF submissions. Recent KTP projects at Portsmouth have generated case studies to support teaching, student projects (undergraduate and post graduate), a CASE studentship, numerous publications and an award for excellence.
