On 11th October, the GW4 Management Knowledge Transfer Partnership (mKTP) Development Award Project Team is hosting a one day event the University of Exeter, to showcase the benefits that academics and businesses can obtain from applying for mKTP projects.
Management Knowledge Transfer Partnership (mKTP) is a dynamic partnership between a business and a team of academic experts. It is a unique and valuable government grant that bridges the gap between academics and practitioners. The acceptance rate of this grant is typically 85%-90%
Who should attend?
Are you an academic who wishes to build up your profile by funding applications and high-quality research papers?
You will have a chance to interact with top scholars who successfully obtained and ran mKTP projects. They will share with you their invaluable experiences in writing proposals and running demand-driven research projects. Moreover, they will tell you they turn mKTP projects into high-quality research papers. You will leave the workshop with a clear understanding of what a mKTP project looks like, how to write an appealing mKTP proposal, and why it will add significant value to your profile.
Are you a business owner who is growth-oriented, looking to upskill your people and make step-change improvements in productivity?
You will have an opportunity to interact with similar business owners/managers who engaged in mKTP projects. They will share with you what they obtained from the projects and how they made the most from having financial support from the government and knowledge support from a team of academic experts. You will leave the workshop with a clear understanding of how your businesses can be improved by engaging with mKTP.
All delegates will have plenty of opportunities to network and build relationships with Southwest region’s KTP advisors, academics from Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, and Exeter Universities, businesses from the southwest regions, and representatives from several business associations.
