Knowledge Transfer Partnerships: University of Northampton aims to drive business growth and innovation in Northamptonshire

Member News

Do you have a business idea, innovative solution, or problem that you lack the time, resources, or expertise to implement? We can help. The University of Northampton is driving business growth and innovation through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs), funded by Innovate UK.

KTPs aim to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through knowledge, technology, and skills. They offer an opportunity to collaborate with an expert academic team from UON, as well as a talented graduate or postgraduate to support the delivery of a particular business initiative. Up to 75% of the costs can be funded depending on the size and type of business.

The Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce will be hosting free, breakfast networking events that will feature a panel discussion and drop in opportunities for businesses interested in completing a KTP.

  • 8:30am – 10:30am, Tuesday 28th March, Delta Hotels by Marriott Northampton, NN4 7HW
  • 8:30am – 10:30am, Friday 21st April, Kettering Park Hotel & Spa, NN15 6XT

To book your place on any of our events, give us a call on 01604 490490 or via the Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce website

The KTP events are part of a campaign by Innovate UK to get more businesses to be aware of and take up KTPs.
