Knowledge Transfer Secondments - University of Southampton

Lead Research Organisation: University of Southampton
Department Name: Faculty of Engineering & the Environment


This Knowledge Transfer Secondments (KTS) grant will provide funding to help ensure the exploitation of the research funded by EPSRC at the University of Southampton. It will operate on the principle that the best way to transfer knowledge is to transfer people. Based on the Research Assistants Industrial Secondments (RAIS) scheme previously available from EPSRC, it will allow movement of skilled people both into and out of the University of Southampton.KTS funding will be used to support secondments of staff previously employed on an EPSRC grant or grants, to enable them to take their results further on towards application by users. KTS funds may also be used for inward secondments, supporting a specific research project carried out in the HEI by someone employed by a user organisation. In all cases there will be a strong connection between the secondment activities and one or more EPSRC-funded research projects.
