At the Knowledge Transfer Centre, our goal is to provide an easy route into the University for anyone interested in working with us and accessing our research. We provide high-levels of service and support to enable partners to develop collaborations via a range of mechanisms and funding opportunities, and focus on helping companies grow and increase their competitiveness. With this goal in mind, it is our privilege to announce our latest partnership with Lloyds Banking Group. Lloyds Banking Group offer a suite of financial services to customers and businesses in the UK and currently provide home insurance to nearly 3 million customers.
This Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) provides an exciting opportunity to develop tools and models which increase the understanding of insurance risk associated with extreme windstorm and flood events within Lloyds Banking Group’s general insurance division. The project involves Academics from the departments of meteorology and geography and environmental sciences who will work closely with the Associate for the duration of the project.
This partnership received financial support from the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) programme . KTP aims to help businesses to improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK knowledge base. This successful Knowledge Transfer Partnership project, funded by UK Research and Innovation through Innovate UK, is part of the government’s Industrial Strategy.
If your business has a product or service that could benefit from a KTP, contact us today to discuss the opportunities available to you in more detail.
