Knowledge transfer partnerships (KTPs) enable universities to work collaboratively with businesses and other organisations. KTPs have mutual benefits for both organisations, enabling the university to increase its commercial potential and business/service organisations to increase their capacity for growth, development and sustainability. This article presents a literature review of KTPs followed by a case study of a KTP between a university (University of Greenwich) and a charity (The Metro Centre), which provides services to people experiencing issues related to sexuality, gender and diversity and that primarily supports lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. An evaluation of this KTP has demonstrated gains and benefits for both the university and Metro, primarily in terms of increasing the evidence-base of the work of Metro and developing its research capacity. This has resulted in the acquisition of significant national funding for a range of projects and studies related to the aims of both the University and Metro.
