You are invited to attend an afternoon of discussion, exploration and networking that will encourage businesses to examine their ways of working and learn how engaging with a university could lead to their business accessing £25m of Innovate UK funding.
An Introduction to Management KTP will present a unique opportunity for businesses based in Greater Manchester and the North West to engage with the universities present and to gain an insight into how Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Partnership funding scheme could help them make a tangible step change through innovation, to improve their business and increase profitability. With a recent boost of £25m funding available for KTP projects that are focused on business management (ranging from accounting to marketing, HR to business operations and business psychology), there is a fantastic prospect for companies to enter partnerships with local Universities to access this money. We are particularly keen to extend this invitation to SMEs, however businesses of all sizes are welcome to attend.

Hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University, University of Manchester and University of Salford, with support from Innovate UK and the Knowledge Transfer Network, the event will include introductory talks from Knowledge Transfer Network Advisors, the opportunity to meet academics who are experts in the Management KTP areas and to engage with University staff to help facilitate new partnerships and projects.
This event is free to attend, with food and refreshments provided.
