‘Working in partnership with Sheffield Universities – the key to a successful collaborative partnership’

Date: Thursday 15th November
Time: 8.00am – 11.00am
Location: Inox Dine

Join us for breakfast on 15th November for an interactive session to help businesses connect with the knowledge and talent on offer at both Universities.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) have been helping businesses to improve their competitiveness and productivity for over 40 years. You will hear from former KTP partners from both industry and academia and they will take you through their journey and how they reached their business goals and collaborative success.

An interactive breakout session will follow to create links and allow 1:1 discussions.

The event is supported by Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) which supports businesses, helping them to innovate and grow. You can access specialist support and meet regional Knowledge Transfer Advisers from the KTN, allowing you the opportunity to discuss ideas and explore options to apply for government funding for collaborative projects such as a KTP.
