The 2012 KTP Awards were held at Westminster Park, Plaza Hotel on Thursday 22 November to honour the best Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.

The structure of KTP helps to ensure results for the business partner, the academic partner and the Associate – the recently qualified individual who delivers the project.

Only those that are considered by the independent Assessors to have achieved above the original expectations of the project for all three partners are eligible for nomination, and the finalists truly represent the best of the best.

The 2012 award categories are:

  • Business Leaders of Tomorrow (5 individuals) – These awards recognise the achievements of Associates who, while working on their KTP project, have demonstrated the potential to become a future business leader. Click here to view the winners
