Knowledge Transfer Adviser - West Sussex, Surrey and South London

Shona Campbell

As the Knowledge Transfer Adviser for West Sussex, Surrey and South London, I can help businesses to scope their knowledge transfer needs and make connections with academic institutions, with a focus on developing Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs). This well-established funding scheme enables innovative businesses to engage with expert academic teams to deliver a project which boosts business growth alongside delivering societal, environmental and cultural benefits.

I have a degree in Plant Science from the University of Glasgow and a PhD in Plant Molecular Genetics from the University in Leeds. Following 10 years supporting agrifood research programmes, I moved to the University of Brighton, initially as KTP Manager, and ultimately as Director of Knowledge Exchange.

Backed up by this long and varied experience of business and academic partnerships, I enjoy working with multi-disciplinary teams across businesses sectors, with a particular passion for projects addressing a net zero future. I value opportunities to network with businesses across my regional patch and welcome invitations to contribute to regional events to promote business innovation and partnerships.
