What is KTP?

KTP stands for Knowledge Transfer Partnership, a government funded initiative.

It is a funding competition awarded to companies who wish to benefit from a partnership resulting in the academic exchange of knowledge and skills.

It was set up as a research project to help improve the image resource Bridgeman Education, to be achieved through a partnership with University of the Arts, London.

Background

The KTP project, led by KTP Associate Kalliopi Vacharopoulou and London College of Communication (LCC) academics David Penfold and Lindsay MacDonald, was set up in July 2008 to review Bridgeman's Education activities and research the art and design educational market and the field of visual resources. The project is due to come to an end in January 2010.

'We started KTP to help turn our educational offering into something valuable that Universities and Schools will use to its full potential. We hope to reach the next generation of commerical users, especially designers and those in the creative industries.' Pandora Mather-Lees, MD (Sales)
