Most Effective Initiative from a KTP Office, award supported by  Praxis Auril and inspired by David Woollard

KTP is strategically important to Aston, and its portfolio of programmes is growing rapidly. Aston is  now the 9th most active institution in the UK and expects further growth towards a total of 30 KTPs by the end of 2020.

Its academic excellence in Computer Science and Data Analytics plays a crucial role in its KTP portfolio, with 45% of partnerships currently from this discipline. These partnerships have played a pivotal role in helping to co-develop the Computer Science Industry Club (CSIC) which harnesses cutting-edge industry expertise to generate high-level graduate opportunities enhance the skills of students and develop new research opportunities.

The ‘CSIC’s pilot activities were exclusively drawn from companies with existing or historic KTP projects with Aston (Keynetix Ltd, Majestic 12 Ltd, Rimilia Ltd, Zen Zero Ltd and Integrated Geotechnical Integration Ltd) but has now grown to include other innovative SMEs and much larger businesses including Tata Consultancy Services, Arcadis, Dignity plc and Beazley Group.

The CSIC has both enhanced the impact of existing KTPs and provided a platform for new KTP projects creating strong two-way benefits. CSIC has received internal and external recognition through awards and cited as best practice.
