Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) is one of the engagement strategies for HKBU academics to commit in signature partnerships with the wider community. It involves collaboration between academics (e.g. professors and researchers), external partners (e.g. associations, NGOs), and the respective community being served. The collaboration projects enable the transfer of knowledge and research from HKBU to the community, empowering not only the external partners, but also individual participants of the projects. The ultimate goal is to achieve far-reaching and significant research impact in the community.
With the establishment of the Knowledge Transfer Office (KTO), HKBU hopes to encourage more academics to get involved in community engagement projects or events in various ways. KTO strives to initiate projects, facilitate different levels of knowledge transfer, and assist in the administrative duties assigned by the project leader. A Knowledge Transfer Partnership Seed Fund has also been set up to support academics to undertake KT Partnership in different disciplines.
