CALLNG ALL ACADEMICS WHO WISH TO ENGAGE WITH BUSINESSES!
Staff are invited to attend the:
‘Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) and SMART awards events’
Both these schemes are UK-wide programmes funded by the Technology Strategy Board.
KTP provides academics with opportunities for the practical application of their research. Importantly, they are an opportunity for academics to engage with the business community.
SMART awards assist businesses to engage in research & development projects in areas such as science, engineering and technology, from which successful new products, processes and services can emerge. Whilst universities may not apply directly, they may act as a sub-contractor to an applicant.
If you are interested in learning more about KTP and SMART awards, please come along to one of the following events:
Friday 26th April Breakfast Meeting – Talbot Campus (KG103) – 8.30am – 10.30am
Tuesday 30th April Executive Business Centre (7th Floor) – Lansdowne – 6pm – 8pm
(To book your place – just go to the ‘Eventbrite link’ listed under each date. There are only a limited number of spaces left, so please book asap to avoid missing out)
- Local businesses are going to be invited to attend these sessions too, which will provide a valuable opportunity for academics to network and develop potential working relationships with them.
