Sweden looks to adopt the KTP model for success.

KTP Knowledge Transfer Adviser, John Clayton, represented InnovateUK at the recent Swedish KTP national strategy event hosted by Swedish KTP pilot lead, Dalarna University.

Around sixty national and international guests from the university, business and political sectors participated in the KTP Day on May 17th 2019 at Dalarna Science Park in Borlänge, some 2 ½ hours north of Stockholm.

The day reflected on the success and challenges of the Swedish KTP programme which has been running as a regional pilot for 3 years; and highlighted the UK’s beneficial 40-year plus experience of delivering KTP nationally.

The main aim of the event was to consolidate a strategy to extend the Swedish KTP pilot programme from a regional focus into a national Swedish KTP programme.

“We have a national application to implement KTP at seven HEIs around Sweden so it feels exciting”, says Johan Kostela, department manager KTP Högskolan Dalarna. “There is a great variety of projects and they work just as well within the social services as in the IT industry and product development”, he added.
