My Cranfield Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) experience

Do you have an innovative and challenging idea to advance your business but need additional knowledge and capability to fulfil your ambition?

A KTP project with Cranfield could be the solution. 

Please don’t hesitate to come and talk to us at CropTec 2019. 

Companies that participate in KTP benefit from increased profits and exports, investment in plant and machinery and further research and development, trained staff and new job creation.

Here’s what AB Sugar has to say about working with us:

“Our KTP with Cranfield has produced benefits beyond the immediate scope of the project we are working on, and we have benefited in a number of significant ways. For instance our knowledge of a fundamental component of agriculture, the soil, has significantly increased, which in turn has allowed us to support our suppliers better.

“The project itself has advanced our understanding and ability in the area of harvest management even before the project has been completed.

“The KTP associate has introduced new perspectives and thinking in areas beyond the project. He has also given us easy access to Cranfield’s excellent academic resources, their depth of knowledge and network.

“Having an additional member of the team, with skills and knowledge new to the company, has been a very beneficial asset, we didn’t previously realise we had missing.”

Where appropriate, KTP projects can also make use of the facilities and expertise associated with the:

  • Crop Health and Protection Centre (CHAP)soil health facilities housed at Cranfield which allows integrated pilot scale research on the dynamic interactions between soil condition, crops, tillage, water and biotic stresses

Precision Agriculture Innovation and Engineering (Agri-EPI), a centre of engineering excellence in which innovative tools are developed for the measurement and control of variability.

We look forward to discussing how a KTP can enhance your business.
