Knowledge Transfer Partnerships – Access Entrepreneurship and Innovation – Business (

KTP is a tried-and-trusted way to embed the knowledge of UEA talent in your organisation.

They help you explore a new idea or strategy, by adding the outside expertise you need.

Grant money is provided by Innovate UK, allowing you to access the latest academic thinking and work with a highly skilled graduate on a project to benefit your organisation.

We can help you manage and structure the project from start to finish, from securing funding to recruiting the right graduate for the role.

Our partners have previously used Knowledge Transfer Partnerships to unlock new markets, increase expertise, and improve how they work. These projects have a knock-on effect – raising profitability and efficiency.

UEA research is making real-world impact.

That’s why 91 per cent of UEA research has been rated 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent' by the Research Excellence Framework (REF2021). We’re also in the UK top 20 for research quality*.

UEA is a globally significant centre of research that drives global change. We bring fresh thinking to the major challenges facing society, helping to create a better future for all.

UEA’s world-leading research covers science, health and medicine, social sciences and the humanities. It addresses some of the biggest issues facing society today, from transforming the lives of children in state care to providing the global temperature records which inform international climate change policy.

We also have an enduring culture of working beyond subject and geographical boundaries. We think without borders.
