Our annual celebration of the most outstanding Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) projects is nearly here. And this year, it’s rather different! 

As a result of Covid19 we have reimagined the KTP Best of the Best Awards event, working with our KTN colleagues at ImmerseUK in partnership with Laval Virtual to bring you a Virtual Awards Ceremony. 

Free to all and with no special equipment needed to enjoy the immersive experience, it’s not too late to register to download the platform – but hurry so you have time to customise your avatar (latest registration time 2pm today)! If you can’t register in time, just join the Ceremony on our YouTube channel here. 

Hosted by the KTN’s highly experienced Senior Knowledge Transfer Adviser, Fiona Nightingale and featuring talks by Innovate UK Interim Executive Chair, Dr Ian Campbell and KTN’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr Alicia Greated, the Awards promise to be an enjoyable celebration of the extraordinary transformation that KTP collaborations can deliver. 

I have always been so impressed at the massive impact that the KTP projects have. KTP showcases all the things we value and promote at KTN – the power of collaboration; sharing deep expertise; looking ahead to shape the future; and ultimately connecting people for positive change –  the kind of change that contributes to economic, societal and environmental wellbeing. 

We are all looking forward to the KTP Awards so we can collectively celebrate the impact of this extraordinary collaborative mechanism” said Alicia Greated. 

Over its 45 year history, KTP has gone from strength to strength, underpinning major change in organisations right across the UK and in every sector of the economy. Today more than 800 organisations, 100 Knowledge Bases and more than 800 KTP Associates are involved in KTP.
