EPSRC Knowledge Transfer (KT) Account: Call for Applications

01 Apr 2010

Final Call for KT Fellowship Scheme – 26 May 2010

The University of Manchester was awarded an £8.3m Knowledge Transfer Account (KTA) based on its plans to increase the impact, uptake and exploitation of research investments from EPSRC.

Since the start of the KTA in October 2009 the schemes have proven to be highly successful. The University’s KTA Operations Board would like to issue the fourth call for proposals for funding under these mechanisms:

  • Secondments Scheme
  • Concept and Feasibility Study Scheme
  • Knowledge Transfer Fellowships scheme

The closing date for applications to this next call is 26 May 2010 at 12pm (noon).

KT Fellows Scheme

Due to the high demand for KT Fellows, we have already awarded six KT Fellowships in the following research areas:

  • Photonic Device and Sensor Technology
  • Material Chemistry Technology
  • Biocatalysis
  • Laser Processing
  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Applied Mathematics

The KT Fellows’ role is to respond to the demand for multiple, short-term, ‘problem-focused’ industrial projects from a range of companies.

The KTA team is announcing the final opportunity for academics to apply for funding of up to £160,000 for two-year KT Fellow posts.

The next call for Concept and Feasibility and Secondment schemes will be 16 July 2010 at 12pm (noon).
