    Give your business a boost – harness the expertise of Oxford Brookes

    A better product, an improved process, or a new technology can make a huge difference to a business; and investment is available to help make those innovations happen.

    Oxford Brookes is a champion of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs), a tried-and-tested government programme designed to support innovation and profitability. A KTP brings an ambitious graduate, supported by university specialists, into a company to lead a project and make a difference. And a smaller organisation pays just one third of the cost! In July 2017, the UK government added an extra £30 million for KTP funding, backing the model’s track record of success over more than 40 years.

    YASA Motors were ‘blown away’ by the results of their KTP collaboration with Oxford Brookes. Watch to find out some of the reasons why.

    Research shows that on average a Partnership will generate:

    • an increase of over £1m per annum* in annual profits before tax
    • three genuine new jobs
    • 29 additional staff trained

    Many thousands of companies have already benefited from KTP, and you can see some of the successful – and award winning –Brookes partnerships with business on our Case Studies page. Other benefits include access to the latest research and an embedding of innovation culture.
