Partnership UIN

This Part must be signed by two senior personnel, one from the proposed Company Partner
and the other from the proposed Knowledge Base Partner. They must be empowered to
commit their organisations to support the proposed Knowledge Transfer Partnership.

We have read and understood the Guidance Notes for prospective Partners completing a
Grant Application and Proposal Form, including the statement on data protection. We also
agree that if this Knowledge Transfer Partnership proposal and grant application is approved:

a.      The Knowledge Transfer Partnership will be carried out in accordance with the
        proposal contained in this document unless the Local Management Committee (LMC)
        agrees to change it or changes are required by the KTP Programme Manager, acting
        on behalf of the Technology Strategy Board, the lead organisation for KTP and acting
        on behalf of the other funding organisations, or by a Technology Strategy Board
        official. Such changes can be made before or after the application has been
        approved.
b.      The Associate will be recruited jointly by both Partners and offered an agreed contract
        of employment by the Knowledge Base Partner. The Associate will work mainly on the
        premises of the proposed Company Partner identified at 9.4 and follow the normal
        practices of the Company Partner regarding confidentiality, attendance and leave.
        Their salary level will be agreed by both Partners. The Associate’s contract cannot be
        terminated without adequate consultation between the Partners.
c.      The Company Partner’s staff member(s) (named at 9.4) will supervise the Associate
        on a day-to-day basis.
d.      The Knowledge Base Partner’s staff member(s) (named at 10.5) will spend, on
        average, at least half a day a week on the Associate during the period of the
        Knowledge Transfer Partnership on supervision at the premises of the Company
        Partner identified at 9.5. Where circumstances require alternative arrangements to be
        made we confirm commitment to the arrangements shown in Section 7.4.
e.      Both Partners will commit all reasonable resources to enable the successful
        completion of the Knowledge Transfer Partnership.
f.      Both Partners have reached, or herein commit to reach, an agreement on intellectual
        property rights in respect of the proposed Knowledge Transfer Partnership.
g.      The Associate will not be diverted from Knowledge Transfer Partnership-related
        activities, other than to spend approximately 10 per cent of their time on appropriate
        formal training and personal and professional development activities. These will
        include the KTP Associate Development Course and achieving relevant units of
        S/NVQ (Level 4) in Management aligned to the National Management Standards.
h.      In addition to using their expertise and knowledge to support the proposed Knowledge
        Transfer Partnership, the Lead Academic/Researcher will provide regular reports to
        the LMC on the expenditure and commitment of resources for the Knowledge
        Transfer Partnership.
j.      The identified Company and Knowledge Base Partner Supervisors will jointly and
        formally appraise the performance of the Associate at six-month intervals. They will
        also attend, as soon as possible after approval of the proposal their respective
        Associate’s Project, a KTP Supervisors’ Workshop.
k.      The Company Partner will pay at least up to the total amount indicated in column 3 of
        the funding table at Section 8 to the Knowledge Base Partner to offset the costs

            Partner (and agreed by the LMC prior to the date of termination) in respect of the
            Knowledge Transfer Partnership, no matter whether that expenditure was incurred by
            the Knowledge Base Partner before or after the date of termination. It is understood

            subject to VAT (which may or may not be recoverable by the company).
