1 Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs)

2 Where is KTP on the innovation spectrum? Idea concrete; application determined Demonstrator performs Idea developed Prototype/ demo developed Product prepared for manufacture Product Development Design/DevelopDevelop/ProduceResearch Technology Readiness Level (TRL ) Product & associated processes mature KTP

3 KTP - main points Partnership between business and academia - must be driven by business need Annual project budget of ~£65k Typically 67% grant funding for SME and 50% for large company Project length typically 2 years 90% success rate for proposals –Pre-proposal checks and process supported by network of 24 Regional KTP Advisers

4 KTP benefits For every £1m of government money invested: –32 new jobs were created –269 company staff were trained –£0.84m was invested on average by companies in plant and machinery –£1.15m was invested on average by companies in R&D –businesses predicted a post-project increase in annual pre-tax profit of £3.46m.

5 KTP thematic competition Agrifood Supply Chain Information provided by: John Whittall Lead Technologist, Sustainable Agriculture & Food Nick Bassett Lead Technologist Biosciences

6 Agri-food supply chain Contributes £96 billion or 7% of UK GVA Sector challenges include –Global food security –Resilience to environmental stresses –Rise in chronic, diet-related health conditions –Food safety, authenticity and traceability Increased engagement with TSB over last 5 years –AgriTech strategy, SAF IP & Biosciences programmes ~50 KTPs formally classified as Agriculture or Food since 2007

7 Competition features Competition budget £2.3m including co-funding –Competition opens 19 June –Competition close Feb 2015 Typical 2 yr duration for KTPs in this call - longer possible if justified Previous involvement in KTPs (outside this call) not taken into account Regional engagement events planned Sept / Oct 14 Networking events and other activities planned to support “cohort” of KTP Associates funded through this call
