About KTP
A KTP is a mutually beneficial, three-way collaboration between:
  • A graduate or post graduate (known as an Associate)
  • An organisation (a business of any size, in any sector or a not for profit organisation)
  • A university/research institution (Knowledge Base).

KTPs are designed to deliver an innovation project and bring about lasting, transformative change. As a KTP Associate, you lead the project with full support and input from the business and the Knowledge Base teams.

About KTP

Hear it from our Associates

Businesses need to be innovative to grow. As a KTP Associate, you can embed your academic expertise, generate new knowledge, expand the capability of a business and foster a culture of innovation, with the support of leading academics. A KTP will provide you with an opportunity to fast track your career and own your own project in a real life business. We caught up with some of our Associates to find out about their KTP experience so far and what their projects involve. Together, Nada, Andrew, William and Declan are building Belfast.
