Free webinar: How to get academic insight and experience into your business

Effective management and leadership can be the difference between companies that thrive and those that fail. That is why Innovate UK has introduced a new match funded programme – the Management Knowledge Transfer Partnership – designed to inject significant management expertise into businesses to expand business capability, increase efficiency and enable lasting change and growth.

The Management Knowledge Transfer Partnership (mKTP) forms part of the existing £multi-million Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Programme. The webinar will provide first hand experiences of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and details about the new mKTP.

What are KTPs?

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are dynamic, three way partnerships that link a business, an expert academic team and a suitably qualified and talented graduate. The KTP team collaborates to deliver a strategic project – sharing expertise, experience and resources to bring about change, embed knowledge and deliver growth.

KTP costs are shared between the business and Innovate UK through a unique type of match-funding. KTP is all about collaboration, with projects lasting from between 12 months to three years.

What are Management KTPs?

Management KTPs (mKTPs) operate in the same way as KTPs but with the focus specifically on management-based projects to increase business efficiency and help generate growth via partnerships with Business Schools. mKTPs take a wide view, incorporating a range of leadership and management skills and requirements to build a strategy that drives change and improves business performance.

Spanning all key business functions – from marketing to IT, creativity to strategic management; HR to employment relations; finance to logistics – mKTPs seek to support strategic management projects across all core business activities.

What will this webinar cover?

The webinar is your chance to discover more about how KTPs work, and what the specific opportunity is for companies that may wish to participate in a Management KTP.

You will hear from members of a current partnership, from both the company and graduate perspectives, as well as from the KTP Team at the University of York who will provide you with detail about the costs, the KTP structure and how your business could benefit.
