To make an impact in the world of business innovation, Queen's Business School links together academic expertise, talented graduates, and businesses across the world. We encourage sharing of expertise, ideas, data and experiences, so that the process is mutually beneficial for everyone involved.

A Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) drives a business innovation project and is designed to bring about lasting, transformative change. It's a three way collaboration between:
- A business (a company of any size, in any sector or a not-for-profit organisation)
- A University / research institution (knowledge base)
- A graduate or post graduate (known as an Associate)
The project is led by a suitably qualified Associate with the capability to lead a strategic project with full support and input from the academic and business teams. This partnership embeds vital new expertise, stimulates business growth and powers innovation excellence.
