The Innovate UK KTP Awards 2021, Winners Video outlines multiple positive impacts of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.

How have UK businesses benefitted from accessing academic expertise and resources – and fresh thinking?

We sat down with the four winning partnerships from this year’s 2021 Innovate UK KTP Awards post-ceremony and captured their thoughts on what winning their respective award categories meant to them and reflect on the depth and breadth of impacts that KTP has had.  The Winners highlight the diversity of projects that can benefit from this special collaborative framework.

You will hear from the KTP Awards winners from the following Categories:

  • The Best Knowledge Transfer Partnership Award, Martin Haley, CEO – Red Whale
  • Engineering Excellence Award, Callum Crawford, Head of Innovation – JFD Global
  • Business Impact Award – Alan Larkin, Head of Innovation & Technology – Family Law Partners
  • Societal Impact Award – Singeta Kalhan Gregory – Service Manager – St. David’s Children Society 

Winners also include talented graduates who lead each KTP project, working as KTP Associates. Hear from the winners here (insert a link to KTP Associate VTs).  And see the latest job vacancies for KTP Associates here.

We hope that KTP Partnerships will be inspired by this year’s winners and encouraged to apply for the awards in 2022! Watch this space for an announcement when next years Awards nominations will open!
