Academics will be invited to apply for cohort 3 of the Knowledge Transfer Partnership Academic Development Scheme (KTPADS) from 9th November 2015.
For those who are unfamiliar with Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP), they are a three-way partnership between a knowledge base (in this case, BU), a company and a graduates. There is knowledge transfer in all directions where academic knowledge embeds a new capability within a business to make it more efficient and profitable via a project managed by a graduate.
The aim of this scheme is to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge needed to engage with business and work towards a collaborative project with a business. The end result aims to see the business using Bournemouth University as a knowledge base for a KTP. The scheme will be made up of a series of workshops on business engagement and networking opportunities with local business, it will also include regular support from the Innovate UK regional KTP Adviser and the Knowledge Exchange Adviser (KTP).
Should you be interested in this scheme or require further information, please contact KE Adviser (KTP), Rachel Clarke on 01202 961347 or email KTP@bournemouth.ac.uk
