Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


The Success of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships


Karl Couch, Business Liaison Officer at Cardiff Metropolitan University, spoke with Business News Wales about the Knowledge Transfer Programme (KTP) at the University and a case study from the partnership with Manufacturing Wales.

Karl shares a case study around Manufacturing Wales member, Sevenoaks Modular who are based in Neath.

The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) programme has been running for over 40 years and is one of UK's leading programmes helping businesses access expertise and resources available within universities. The UK-wide programme is part funded by several organisations including Government, research councils and charities.

A KTP is a partnership between a company, university and a graduate (Associate) who work together to deliver a strategic project for the business which the company would be unable to do without the knowledge and expertise provided by the University.
