Today Associate’s from Cranfield University, that are employed full time on the KTP projects, were given the opportunity to network, learn from each other and share their experiences as KTP Associates.
The KTP scheme creates a partnership between the organisation and a UK knowledge base (generally a University) that has appropriate knowledge that can be further developed and transferred to build and embed for the future the knowledge and the capabilities the organisation requires to develop the product or service they have in mind.
A key aspect of the KTP model is the expectation that the project will create value for the organisation such as access to new markets, increases in sales income, reductions in cost and increases in profitability. The project is also expected to lead to benefits in the University in terms of teaching, research, publications and enhanced relationships with industry. The knowledge is developed and transferred into the commercial organisation by means of the partnership recruiting an Associate who is employed by the university but who works at the organisation’s base.
The Associate’s role is to work with the organisation and the university team to develop the knowledge required to solve the particular challenge the company is working on and ensure that existing company personnel are trained in the technology or techniques required to maintain the new capability into the future after the end of the project.
