Criteria for support of KTP projects
Industry and business sectors
The AHRC will support Knowledge Transfer Partnership projects in which knowledge, expertise, skills and/or technology/technologies arising from arts and humanities research are transferred to businesses and other sectors within the UK. These can range from commercial to, not for profit, charity, and publicly funded organisations.

Disciplines and subject areas
AHRC is liberal in its interpretation of the arts and humanities subject domain especially where it interfaces with areas covered by other Research Councils.
You can find out further information in the Peer Review College section.
Size of Company
The AHRC will support projects with organisations of any size but in the main they are likely to be small or medium enterprises (SMEs).
Shared funding/sole funding
There are inevitable overlaps and boundaries that the AHRC shares with other award-making bodies, especially the other Research Councils. Partnerships may be funded on a shared basis with Innovate UK or other sponsors and that does not preclude co-sponsorship with the science or engineering focused sponsors. The AHRC is also willing to consider sole funding innovative KTPs that do not meet the criteria of any other sponsors (including Innovate UK) but which serve to further the reach and impact of Arts & Humanities knowledge and expertise.
