Venue: Robotarium, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh

Time: 09:30 to 12:00

Heriot-Watt University in partnership with CEED would like to invite you to an innovation event on Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs). KTP is Europe’s leading program to help businesses to improve their competitiveness and productivity through better use of knowledge, technology and skills. A KTP will link a company to a knowledge base (either a University or a Research Organisation) and a capable graduate or post graduate will be recruited to deliver the project, guided by a team of academic experts.

Join us to hear from Jim Berryman, the local Knowledge Transfer Adviser from Innovate UK and Judy Brown, the manager from the East of Scotland KTP Centre on how they can assist our business to secure KTP funding.

Lee Baines from MacTaggart Scott and Josh Leworthy from Dukosi will share their experience of successfully partnerships with Heriot-Watt University and how the projects have helped their businesses.
