UKAS proud to support Chief Scientific Officer’s Knowledge Transfer Partnership Programme 2021

This year UKAS is delighted to be able to continue to support the Chief Scientific Officer’s (CSO) Knowledge Transfer Partnership Programme for 2021.

The programme for this year will be launched at the CSO Conference.  Come along and learn more about how UKAS is working with NHS England, NPL and UK NML ChemBio to share knowledge and support the development of innovative ideas that will improve services for patients.

About the KTP Programme

The CSO’s Knowledge Transfer Partnership Programme offers a unique opportunity for clinical leaders and aspiring leaders in their field to build long-term partnerships between clinical, research and industry teams through collaboration at a senior level with partner organisations across the UK’s National Measurement System (NMS) and the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

Through facilitating early interaction and knowledge exchange, the programme aims to speed up the identification and dissemination of high-value new approaches to improving patient outcomes and increasing efficiency, whilst promoting economic growth and inward investment in the life sciences.

The eighteen-month programme is designed to enable healthcare science staff to remain in clinical service whilst exchanging skills and expertise with NMS experts to create, expand, test or implement innovative ideas to improve the quality of patient care (as set out in NHS England’s Long Term Plan.)
