Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP)

What is it?

A unique collaborative opportunity for business to stimulate and enhance relevant research. A qualified Liverpool John Moores University graduate with the appropriate skills and knowledge will work full time within your business to deliver a project central to your strategic development plans.

How can you benefit?

  • As KTPs are part-funded by government, you can reduce your project costs (a company pays between 33% and 50% of the project costs
  • With University involvement from day one, you’ll have key academic(s) from relevant fields spending time on the project
  • Your business will have access to University resources and labs relevant to your project, meaning you won’t need to invest in specialist equipment to realise your objectives

"Our partnership with LJMU has been transformational; it has challenged our vision, broadened out thinking and deepened our business integration. We couldn't have deployed so successfully without their support. This year, we are on target to achieve an extra £10m in the group revenue. LJMU is now a natural source for 'new blood' to take the organisation forward."
