This 2-hour event will showcase the benefits of engaging with Strathclyde on Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs). The KTP scheme has been helping businesses to innovate and grow for the past 40 years. It does this by linking the business with a university and a graduate to work on a specific project.  The event will be held online and will include:

  • An introduction to Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) 


  • Presentations from 3 industry, academic and graduate teams who have recently completed KTPs
    1. Developing a holistic predictive framework for condition monitoring of ship machinery systems
    2. The development of graphite felts for large scale energy storage applications in redox flow batteries
    3. Implementing a culture of innovation in a semi-regulated environment


  • An opportunity for you to ask questions and receive answers
