This year’s KTP Best of the Best Awards reflect the extraordinary diversity of KTP’s reach. With projects running throughout the UK, across almost every sector of the economy and involving innovation of such rich variety KTP truly is a unique mechanism for enabling positive change.
Every KTP should benefit all three partners involved, and this is a key consideration in the Best KTP Award – the most prestigious of the six categories being Awarded this year.
This award honours the most outstanding overall partnership; the one which has brought the most significant benefits to all three participants, and which best exemplifies true innovation through collaboration. The winner will be announced in our Virtual Ceremony on Wednesday 9 September, 4-5pm by Dr Ian Campbell, Interim Executive Chair, Innovate UK. Join us to find out who wins by registering for the event here.
Company Aquacheck Engineering
University Manchester Metropolitan University
KTP Associate Dario Chiantello
Funding Innovate UK
Aquacheck, a market leading supplier of standpipes to UK water companies, wanted to create a new Internet of Things (IoT) device – a Smart Standpipe – that could solve well-known and industry-wide issues through the integration of Advanced Metering Infrastructure. This would allow the water companies to monitor real time data for the location, volume, flow and pressure readings for every standpipe in use. The result was the creation of a state of the art Smart Standpipe. More on this project here.
