Funding Opportunities for Business Signposting

Further to our recent event, we wanted to share with you more information about how to access some of the current opportunities available for business.

The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) is designed to solve a recognised strategic problem or need within a business and use the University of York’s academic expertise to do this. Projects can be from 12 - 36 months in duration and can be established with any UK based business or not-for-profit with five employees or more (excluding the public sector). For further information visit or email for an informal chat.

There is currently 40% funding available for support around high performing workplaces which includes employee engagement, leadership, development, team building, training, coaching and mentoring. Email the York Professionals Chair, Michelle Mook to find out more.

For further information on the Product and Process Innovation Project (PAPI) workshops and grants visit or for general advice, guidance and further email
