Background of Knowledge Transfer Programme (KTP)
KTP recognises a broad range of activities to support mutually beneficial collaborations between universities, industries and communities (government agencies / non-government organisations (NGOs)/public sector).
It provides the platform for the exchange of tangible and intangible intellectual property, expertise, learning and skills between academia, industry and the community.
The forms of interactions may include, consultancy, education, training, graduate development, conferences, sharing of physical facilities and student placements.

Industry : can utilize the resources of IPTAs to enhance their business capability and economic activities
Community : can benefit from the knowledge generated in IPTAs to improve quality of life within the community.
