Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and Research Methods

BackNews & Events

25th August 2022


The Methods for Change team are seeking to speak to academics who are involved with KTPs within the ASPECT network for two reasons:

  • to understand their experiences and build a picture around potential pathways for those who are interested in engaging with non-academic partners to share knowledge on their research methods
  • to see if they know other academics in their institutions who are interested in applying their research methods to non-academic contexts so we can provide information, training and provide a space to discuss cross-institutional collaborations.

If you are involved with business engagement/KTP in your institutions and happy to provide names/do introductions, please email
