Knowledge Transfer Adviser - Birmingham, the Black Country, Shropshire and South Staffordshire

I am the Knowledge Transfer Adviser for Birmingham, the Black Country, Shropshire, and South Staffordshire.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) support businesses to engage with expert academic teams on a project-based collaboration delivering sustainable innovation with positive economic impact and additional societal or environmental benefits. I look after businesses supporting their projects with knowledge bases in many parts of the country. I also maintain relationships with a number of designated universities in relation to their participation in the programme.

With an engineering background, I have extensive experience in technical and commercial project management in a business environment. I am passionate about innovation and enjoy working with businesses with similar agendas. My sector knowledge lies in Manufacturing and Automotive technologies, but my wider experience in growing businesses is well utilised in my Knowledge Transfer Adviser role.

I enjoy working with businesses of all sizes, building out creative links between innovation and strategic ambitions, and adopting a pragmatic approach.
