Access additional £30m funding for collaborative R&D


Interested in accessing £30m of additional funding available from Innovate UK to support a partnership between your organisation and a university or college, focusing on delivery of an innovative project?  

The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme is a three way partnership between a business, a university or college and a qualified graduate, enabling businesses to bring new skills and the latest academic thinking to deliver a specific, strategic innovation project.

At this event, you will find out first hand from companies who have already engaged in successful KTP projects and from companies collaborating with the knowledge base through the Invest NI Competence Centre Programme.

There will also be an opportunity to speak with KTP advisers and a chance for you to pitch your collaborative project idea.
