“KTP projects pave the way to businesses who want to exploit the latest advancements but do not have the expertise or confidence to do so. Through input from academic experts advising on the latest research in the field, and unrelenting support and guidance from Innovate UK [KTN], success is way more attainable.”
“The KTP not only provided the project management and skilled people….but the support of the University academic supervisors [made] it as current and evidence based as possible. A KTP was one of the only ways to achieve this.”
“My KTP was challenging but very rewarding at the same time. I have received an unique opportunity to work in the industry and academia at the same time, which is very advantageous. I became a better researcher and worked with different departments at the company, which gave me a great idea of how I want to shape my career path”.

“For me, the KTP role has really been a life changing opportunity…. I hadn’t heard of KTP until I applied for my role, however after the experience I have had I recommend it to anyone – especially graduates as it’s a great bridge between university and ‘real life’. It is certainly a decision I will never regret”.

The Management KTP initiative is fantastic for any growth-oriented SME, such as RBP, and we cannot recommend this programme highly enough”.
“Through KTP, I’ve found a graduate role which offers both academic and industry experience in equal measure. My role is intensely immersive, which I put down to the considerable degree of autonomy the KTP framework affords. Our project is a win-win for its stakeholders, may lead to job creation and will reduce our Carbon footprint. That’s satisfying.”
