Why work with Salford?
Businesses often have innovative ideas but often lack the internal expertise or funding to make it happen. The University of Salford Partnerships Office has an outstanding record in helping achieving innovation, enterprise and skills. Together, we can help you reap the rewards that a longer-term investment in Knowledge Transfer can offer.
The University of Salford has been involved in KTP since its initial launch, as Teaching Company Scheme (TCS) in 1975 whereby it was the first University to pilot the scheme.
Established in 2005, the Partnerships Office became the focal point for Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) development and support activity. The commitment of the KTP Team are what sets Salford apart from other Universities, Colleges and Research Organisations across the nation. The Salford KTP team offer an end-to-end support service; our delivery model is the national 'gold standard' for KTP management. We understand that each individual company will have differing needs and a thoughtful and engaging attitude when linking our academic researchers to your specific project is at the forefront of what we do.
Knowledge Transfer Partnership
What is KTP
KTP is a three way partnership between companies, graduates and academics.
KTP is a UK-wide programme that has been helping businesses for the past 40+ years to improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK Knowledge Base.
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships is a fully salaried graduate programme, normally 2 years in duration, that provides graduates with a real job and an opportunity to fast track a career in industry.
The University of Salford Partnerships Office has an outstanding record in helping achieving innovation, enterprise and skills. Together, we can help you reap the rewards that a longer-term investment in Knowledge Transfer can offer.
Industry Sponsored PhD & MRes
The Partnerships office in 2011 saw the introduction of Industrial Sponsored PhD Studentships, providing support for students to undertake a first-rate challenging research training experience, allowing top quality graduates to undertake research, leading to a PhD, within the context of a mutually beneficial research collaboration between academic and partner organisations. In addition to experience of an industrial research environment, the student should receive business-related training, for example, in project-management, business strategy.
Industry sponsored PhDs and Masters by Research provides funding for studentships where businesses take the lead in scoping the research question.
The aim of these awards is to provide the appointed student with a first-rate, challenging research training experience, within the context of a mutually beneficial research collaboration between academic and partner organisations e.g. industry and policy making bodies.
