Innovation in Action: Knowledge Transfer Partnerships Event

Tue, 31 October, 2023

The TWI Innovation Network (TWIIN) and Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) are holding an in-person event on 29 November 2023 dedicated to Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) between industry and academia.

The event, ‘Innovation in Action’ will take place at ARU’s Cambridge, UK campus, where you will have the chance to find out how you can benefit from a partnership between industry and universities.

Reports have shown that those businesses that invest in innovation experience higher growth and productivity as well as exporting more products. KTPs are an important enabler in these types of collaborations, providing avenues for business and academia to work together on project backed by funding from UK Research and Innovation through Innovate UK (IUK), alongside support from other Government initiatives.

This event will take place in the afternoon of 29 November, with the following agenda:

13.30 - Registration

14:00 - Welcome and Introductions

14:20 - Innovate UK Presentation

14:30 - TWI Innovation Network Presentation – Irmak Kockan, Innovation Consultancy Manager

15:15 - Working with ARU – Research and Innovation Development Office (RIDO) and Employability

15:45 - Panel Discussion

16:00 - Close

Attendees will have the chance to explore the suitability of their company or organisation (whether profit-making or not-for-profit) to KTPs through advice from specialist IUK Knowledge Transfer Advisers, who provide assistance throughout the life cycle of every KTP with ARU.
