The KTP Office is pleased to announce a new KTP scheme driven by the Welsh Government; the enhanced KTP (eKTP). eKTP follows the same principles as the classic KTP but brings in an additional partner from overseas, either a company or a HEI. The idea is to bring in new knowledge and expertise from overseas in order to help Welsh companies.
Projects should last 3 years and the KTP Associate should be at post doctoral level or study for a PhD as part of the project. Knowledge will be gained through visits to the overseas collaborator and transferred to a partner company in Wales.
Projects should fit with the Welsh Government's priority areas for funding: Energy and Environment; Advanced Materials and Manufacturing; Creative Industries; Financial and Professional Services; Life Sciences; ICT; Food and Farming; Construction; and Tourism.
