Innovation & Enterprise


Develop partnerships

Develop long-term, successful alliances with companies through tailored, high-value research partnerships.

At UCL we partner with some of the world’s leading companies and organisations, as well as other research, training and educational providers.

Our Business and Innovation Partnerships team helps academic staff and students form relationships with business that will:

  • lead to completely new areas of research and innovation
  • apply their expertise and research for wider social and economic benefit

We work in a variety of partnerships with leading companies in energy and resources, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, ICT (information and communications technologies), telecommunications, transport, construction, banking and insurance. 

Each partnership is distinctive and long-term, tailored to a company's strategic direction, market sector and research and development needs.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP)

A Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) helps businesses to innovate, grow and become more productive. It does this by linking them with a university and a graduate to work on a specific project.
