SIPBS KTP funding information and matchmaking event

Date and Time

5th Sep 2019 | 09:30 - 13:30


Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (Sipbs), 161 Cathedral Street


Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are a UK-wide programme, developed over 40 years ago. Since then, it has been helping businesses to improve competitiveness and productivity, by connecting them with an academic partner within the UK.

The main sponsor of the KTP scheme is Innovate UK, the UK’s national innovation agency. SME’s can receive a grant covering 65% of the costs of a KTP project while larger companies can receive 50% of funding.

Come along to our information session and networking/matchmaking event on 5th September at University of Strathclyde. You will hear more about the KTP funding mechanism, can talk to an advisor from the West of Scotland KTP Centre, and can meet potential collaborators in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences.
