Why take part in KTP?

What is KTP?

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) is a UK-wide programme funded by Innovate UK which enables businesses to improve their performance. By working in partnership with the University of Wolverhampton and a recent graduate to lead the project, businesses can take their organisation to the next level by instilling change, launching new products or revolutionising the marketplace.

“We have had a number of very successful KTPs, which have all led to exceptional technological leaps forward for Integrated System Technologies Ltd and helped establish the company as a front-runner in the market place. The KTP graduate proved so instrumental within our electronic engineering and embedded software team that he is now a permanent member of the team. The initial KTP project has enabled further development projects which represent the future of lighting.”
