The KTP Awards 2022 Finalists are announced

Finalists announced

We’re delighted to announce the finalists for this year's Innovate UK KTP Awards.

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 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.

If you want to attend the awards virtually or apply to join us in person, you can register here.
