As one KTP project scoops top prize at the Institution of Engineering & Technology Awards, another wins in last week’s Times Higher Education Awards.
Last week saw the KTP collaboration between Manchester Metropolitan University and The Greater Manchester Youth Justice Partnership  walk away with the top prize in the Best Knowledge Exchange Transfer Initiative category at Times Higher Education Awards, in which another KTP between the University of Suffolk and Orbital Media for their development of an innovative app to help children with asthma, My Spira, was also shortlisted. Find out more about this project here.

And earlier this month, the project forming a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) collaboration between Heriot-Watt University and SP Energy Networks won the top prize of E&T Innovation of the Year at this month’s IET Innovation Awards.

The prestigious award was given for the partnership’s development of a “Network Constraints Early Warning System (NCEWS), which generates algorithms to extract information about missing cable assets and voltage excursions”.  Find out more here.

Congratulations to all of these project teams – it is great to see the fruit of these transformative collaborations receiving such great recognition.
