C&PM collaborates with Network Rail through Knowledge Transfer Partnership
14 July 2014
The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management has secured over £160,000 in funding to undertake a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Network Rail.
The purpose of the KTP between the school and Network Rail is to support the development and implementation of knowledge management processes and systems in Network Rail that will effectively capture and transfer knowledge while increasing innovation. The school, in turn, will gain access to industry-level information and data, which will be used to enhance new thinking. The opportunity will provide unique material for research workshops, high-quality conference papers and journal articles, and further, will be used to inform future teaching.
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, part funded by the Technology Strategy Board, support UK businesses wanting to improve their competitiveness, productivity and performance by applying the knowledge and expertise available within academia to real world, business critical projects.
