After a year like no other, it’s time to celebrate with the ‘Innovate UK KTP Awards 2021.’
Collaboration is at the heart of every KTP; uniting teams around a common purpose for the benefit of everyone. This is what makes the programme such a fruitful, and effective innovation engine.
Over the last year exceptional circumstances felt by all have demanded collaboration on an epic scale.
With this in mind, this years’ awards celebrate ‘The Spirit of Collaboration’ by launching a showcase dedicated to Knowledge Base teams, highlighting outstanding feats during the pandemic.

"My KTP was challenging but very rewarding at the same time. I have received an unique opportunity to work in the industry and academia at the same time, which is very advantageous. I became a better researcher and worked with different departments at the company, which gave me a great idea of how I want to shape my career path".

"For me, the KTP role has really been a life changing opportunity.... I hadn’t heard of KTP until I applied for my role, however after the experience I have had I recommend it to anyone - especially graduates as it’s a great bridge between university and ‘real life’. It is certainly a decision I will never regret". Emily Mason, KTP AssociateNorthumbria Pharma / University of Sunderland
"I am privileged to work both with gifted academics at the University of Cambridge, and bright minds at Vizzuality, a change agency for a sustainable and fair future. I am grateful for this unique opportunity to work in a job that I love and believe in." Melanie Herrmann, KTP AssociateVizzuality/University of Cambridge
The Management KTP initiative is fantastic for any growth-oriented SME, such as RBP, and we cannot recommend this programme highly enough”.
“Through KTP, I’ve found a graduate role which offers both academic and industry experience in equal measure. My role is intensely immersive, which I put down to the considerable degree of autonomy the KTP framework affords. Our project is a win-win for its stakeholders, may lead to job creation and will reduce our Carbon footprint. That’s satisfying.” See a longer profile piece about David Beattie's KTP here.
