An investigation of knowledge transfer practices within the Muslim business community in Edinburgh

  This study endeavoured to understand knowledge transfer practices within the Muslim business community in Edinburgh. It investigated how knowledge transfer practices are managed on a day-to-day basis, examined the route of development and justification for these practices into meaningful knowledge transfer processes, and explored the underlying perspective of knowledge from the knowledge transfer practitioners view within a business context.

Attendees will receive presentations from the KTP and RIO teams with a view to encouraging academics and researchers to develop new KTP projects.

The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme is a three-way partnership between a business, an academic institution and a graduate. The academic institution employs the recently-qualified graduate who works at the company. The graduate, known as the ‘associate’, brings new skills and knowledge to the business.

A KTP can last between 12 and 36 months depending on the project and the needs of the business. It is part-funded by a grant.

Further details on the specific events will be released early January.
