The Innovate UK KTP Awards are back in 2022, with more awards available than ever before!

This year we’ll shine a light on the tremendous impact of the programme, not only on the people and organisations involved but at the broader societal level. In an effort to promote more of KTP, we have also decided to expand the award categories to seven, meaning there will be more opportunities to shine at the 2022 awards ceremony.

The ceremony will happen on Wednesday the 12th of October, in-person and online. If you do wish to attend in person and network with other attendees, please express your interest in doing so when you register, and the team will be in touch.

The KTP Awards recognise the people and partnerships behind the UK’s most inspiring and successful KTP projects. Highlighting these outstanding partnerships is just the tip of the iceberg, with more than 800 inspiring collaborations currently happening across the country.

Each one is forging a new pathway for UK Innovation, a talented graduate, an organisation looking to grow and a knowledge base looking to apply their expertise.

Keynote Speaker: Indro Mukerjee – CEO, Innovate UK

Compere: Professor Suzannah Lipscomb
