This paper outlines the range of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) undertaken by The University of the West of England and discusses two typical cases in detail. It presents the planned and unplanned benefits that have been identified and realized. In addition to the organizational improvements we identify the value of KTPs to those employed by the programme in the form of formal qualifications and transferable skills, and the benefits to the university in terms of research and other opportunities. We also identify the challenges that universities face in attracting and supporting future KTPs.
